Does anybody know what the type of switch is called that is used on a tape player? Like a hand-held audio cassette player. The type of switch where when you push PLAY, the button clicks down into place, but when you push PAUSE, PLAY pops back up. Does anybody know what this type of switch is called? I have been googling things for an hour trying to figure out where I can purchase a switches like this for something I am making, but I need to know the name of the type of switch this is. I need to find a place where I can buy 4 buttons... When you push one down into place, the one that was already pushed pops back up.
I will be needing to find large quantities of these for products I am making that will have 4 buttons on them, where when Button #1 is pressed down, #2, #3, and #4 are all UP, and then when I press #2 DOWN, #1 pops UP and of course #3 and # are also still up....and so on. And when I say pressed Down I mean that it will STAY down until a different button is pressed.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I meant to say when PLAY is down, and if you press STOP, FF, or RWD....PLAY will pop up.

Maybe check with a local radio repair shop that works on old school radios that had the same type of button for the radio presets and see where they source theirs. Watcha makin?
