The first major innovation is the button angle. Legacy remote tape switches feature a flat pad that forces users to strain their thumbs in an unnatural angle to apply consistent pressure to activate a momentary function. Hot Button presents the activation button at a 45-degree angle for an exponentially more comfortable press. This is especially important when activating the button under pressure. A raised, crenelated bezel protects the button from accidental actuation, while providing a tactile index point for the user’s thumb. Because Hot Button is angled, the overall footprint is much smaller than factory OEM pressure pads. Not only does this clean up rails on traditional weapons, but it greatly increases the accessory layout options on smaller SMG and PDW’s.
If that weren’t enough, we have designed two separate versions of Hot Button that will attach directly to either Mil-Std M1913 Picatinny or M-LOK rail interface. Both rail systems are approved and standardized by the US Department of Defense for use on issued weapons. Hot Button secures to these rails with hardware, eliminating the need for Velcro, 100mph Tape, or Zip Ties. This secure attachment method ensures your switches stay on the gun (in the location you placed them) regardless of battlefield abuse.
Hot Button is available for standard Surefire tail caps, Streamlight Pro-Tac models, and standard Crane-Style laser ports (found in B.E. Meyers, Holosun, Insight/L-3, Steiner, and Wilcox products).
The Hot Button is a constant on switch. Momentary activation can be achieved by pressing down halfway. A full press, will “click” and keep the light on until the button is clicked off.
* “FDE” is used throughout our catalog to reference a spectrum of colors that include tan, brown, bronze, earth, and everything in between. Due to the chemical process that takes place during Type III Hardcoat, the final finish can vary from part to part (even parts done in the same batch). Therefore, your “FDE” product may vary from other parts from UNITY and other companies and may vary from the photos shown online.
