Hot Button is a revolutionary control device for weapon-mounted electronic accessories. Developed out of a need to conserve rail-estate, improve actuation ergonomics, and mechanically integrate with weapon fore ends, Hot Button has successfully reinvented how you interface with your lights and lasers.
- 45-degree angled button for an exponentially more comfortable press
- Raised, crenelated bezel protects the button from accidental actuation
- Overall footprint is much smaller than factory OEM pressure pads
- Available for standard Surefire tail caps and standard Crane-Style laser ports
- Available in dual leads configuration
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.
Surefire models are half press for momentary and full press for constant.
Laser models are press for momentary and double tap for constant (With most of the common laser devices on the market [MAWL, DBAL, ATPIAL, etc.])
Hot Button is available for standard Surefire tail caps and standard Crane-Style laser ports (found in B.E. Meyers, Holosun, Insight/L-3, Steiner, and Wilcox products).
It do not surprise me when I got this in. There's a certain level of quality that I've come to expect with unity products. Very easy to install, Very little learning curve when it comes to operation. Its a bit pricey on Unity tactical 's end, in my opinion. However if a m lok mounted pressure switch for your rifle mounted equipment is what you need, you will not be disappointed with this.
Right on time and very good service. I ordered one from OpticsPlanet and it has taken two weeks and still not arrived.
Bought a hot button. They have a lot in stock. Prices are good. Shipping was fast and they are responsive to questions they even provided direct links. Will be buying from here again
I use this to activate my DBAL and it makes it alot easier than having to wrap my thumb to the top to activate the laser. It's nice having a seperate button in a different location than my white light. Definitely worth the money
I used it on a Midwest industries mp5k mlok handgaurd. It was the smallest mlok option that I knew of. I had to grind a bit, but it works. Also this plug is sooooooer long comparably to other switches, I guess it’s better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.
