Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by McGuiverGuy Great safety upgrade
Since I only installed this a couple of weeks ago, I cannot comment on its reliability yet. I installed a similar switch (can't recall brand) in my last house and was very happy with the added safety. With this type of switch installed, you must hold the switch pressed to run the garbage disposal and once released, the disposal stops. This is makes it much safer for everyone - particularly for little children. Also, if the disposal doesn't turn or makes a "funny" noise, the operator is inclined to let go and thus cut the power right away. Further, running the the disposal to clear any peelings or other matter takes only a short press. We do compost, so don't run it a great deal, but it works well for us and to have the added safety is a major plus! The install was a simple one-for-one replacement for the existing switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonis2short I was momentarily pleased with this purchase.
The switch has a pretty strong spring in it but better too strong than too weak. This type of switch is hard to find in person at the big box stores so I was glad to find it online. I'm using it for a garbage disposal, replacing the regular light switch it had before that could just be left on.

This momentary switch is designed for a garbage disposal so it will only run while you are holding the switch. I use this switch to trigger a Gentleman Automation Door Opener. Press the switch and it activates the door opener. This switch performs well, it is not obtrusive and blends in with other switches in the house. This is the second switch of this type that I have installed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Green44 Works fine with the RH-250
Works like it is suppose to. Was not sold in store so I had to order it online. Previously I bought a RH-250 switch sensor in store but a regular 3-way switch does not work with it which is why I had to order the RH-253. Why wasn't the RH-253 sold in store? In the mean time it would be really nice to have it shipped to store for free but that was not an option. Shipping was half the cost.
