I know that these switches exist, I'm holding one in my hand right now.  Its a big black paddle style (ugly).  But the are around, Try any automotive electrical section, they have a TON of switches.

Just imagine a normal on/off toggle switch that when you switch it to on and release it, it's gonna switch back to off by itself with a little spring. That's a momentary toggle switch.

you could try a switch that you slide that has 3 stops, 2 on each end an done in the middle, connect mid 2 to live and ground, then as it was thrown it would connect them for an instant.

Ive seen 3 position momentary toggle switches (from apem) pushing up is momentary and pushing down is momentary the middle position is off. They have them in alot of colors too. Then you could use 1 switch for both cd drives (assuming you have 2 cd drives)

i have looked into the vandal resistant switches before but they are way too big for an eject button. Anxious to see what you guys come up with for switches:)

ok, maybe i was hallucinating when i thought i saw a spring loaded toggle. but i did find this little tutorial about making a toggle switch push a momentary switch, maybe it'll help.


Most momentary toggle switches are spring loaded.  It wouldnt be momentary if it didnt return to the off position.

"toggle switch work with a momentary button"
I don't get it.

There are momentary toggle switches. I had one in my 72 Charger for the headlight covers.

Those buttholes raised the price to $19.99.  I am going to contact Bulgin tomorrow and maybe setup an account.
