Unity Tactical Hot Button – Rail Mount


Flat Dark Earth (FDE)

Product Description

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).

Nice piece of hardware

Grabbed this to replace a regular SF pad. Hotbutton is a very nice piece of equipment, seems very robust. Only complaint is there isn't much difference or travel between the momentary activation and actually clicking it on..... this is really nitpicking though. Overall I'd buy again.

Forward Thinking

After running a Cloud Defensive OWL on my Q Honey Badger I was searching for a pressure pad/light system that would allow me to actuate it from a much more ergonomic thumb position. I discovered the Unity Tactical Hot Button, and am extremely happy with my purchase. Paired with a Surefire Scout DF, I now have a lighter and more comfortable system than what I previously was running. The quality of the Hot Button is outstanding, and even has a recoil lug machined into the base of the mount. The only knock I can give this product is the cable length being too long for most applications.

Top notch!!

Running this on a 10.5, not alot of rail space, came in handy!!!

Nice build in back up option

This is a solid mount
Aimpoint screws in solid. It is hard to align the bolts into the Aimpoint but once done it's not moving.

The back up irons inside are nice as it saves rail space.

I prefer the height of this mount than normal heights for a straight neck
