Momentary toggle switch


I recently came across a momentary wall switch controlling a garbage disposal. I thought this was a good idea so I want to put one in my house. I can only find them in the decorator style. I would like to find one in the toggle style as to keep the same switches throughout my house. So, can anyone help me find a white SPST momentary toggle switch? Thanks in advance!

I don't think you are going to find one.
I think that you will have to chose between your current toggle switch or the momentary Decora style.

The momentary toggles that I am aware of are SPDT, with off in the center position.

You could try Grainger, or just use a air switch tha mounts to the sink.

From memory, Pass and seymour 1250W i've never seen spst toggle style, i'd wire it so either way you push the switch it turns the disposal on..
