I like this simple, yet clever design rayfoss hosts use:





The switch itself can be found here (only $1.90 for 5 pcs):

DX also has those switches with springs and other configurations. Get a selection at that price for your future projects.

I've used these switches from DX. They will work fine for making a laser with a tailcap switch. Some of the smaller ones are not meant for a high current, don't expect them to switch a multiwatt pump diode and driver. If you're making a 200mW or less green module based laser, you'll be fine.
