Description

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE ORDERING! Shipping info below the reviews section. Scroll down past reviews to shipping and click more info!

**NOW AVAILABLE in single USB if you only plan to control one computer, or the standard double USB for use with a redundant backup machine!**

Finally a simple solution to a redundant backup for Qlab! Using this box, and two MacBook Pros, you can hit go on both computers with one button, leaving your other hand free to mix! Plug one 6' USB cable into each computer, and you're controlling them both.

**NOTE: This item is made to order, please allow extra time before shipping.

The big arcade button is the go button. It is satisfying to press and the microswitch's reliability has been tested to 10,000,000 cycles by the switch manufacturer. There is a 1 second double-go protection built into the code in the controller. It also requires a "Key Up" event before firing a second GO, which means even if you hold the button down for ten minutes, you still only get one GO until the button is released.

**PLEASE NOTE** There is a BUILT IN ONE SECOND DOUBLE-GO PROTECTION on these controllers. If you don't want a one second delay between GOs, just add it in a note on your order.

The other buttons are Stop (escape), Load, Up and Down. There are hand painted symbols next to the buttons to help you remember what they do.

The best thing about this system is that if you use MacBook Pros, you'll still have access to the keyboards on each computer. This way, even if the switch goes bad (which isn't very likely), you have another way to fire cues. I have been using this setup for over three years with a dance company I work for. It surely isn't for extremely complicated shows, but there are plenty of other remotes for that. This is a simple solution that provides great results without a lot of complication. Several professional dance companies are using this system now, as well as a few theatrical venues.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. This switch is primarily made for use with the left hand. It can also be used with the right hand if you remember that the up and down buttons will be reversed.

Please note that these painted cases may have small blemishes either from the manufacturer or from my drilling process. I get them for close to the cost of an unpainted case, and you get to have a remote that looks a lot better than an unpainted one. Everybody wins.

The case measures 4.5"x 3.6"x 2".

CABLE COLOR MAY BE DIFFERENT THAN PICTURE.

Thanks very much for looking.

Our big button arrived quickly and worked as expected. Using the glowing red button for an interactive game at our tradeshow booth added an element of fun, and it definitely piqued the curiosity of attendees.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
For custom orders, payment is required before the item is completed. I'm sorry, but I can't do volume discounts. However, for orders of ten or more buttons, standard shipping costs within the continental USA are on me.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
Ordinarily, once you've ordered and received your button, it's yours. Let me know if there's a problem, and I'll work with you to solve it.

Any returns may be subject to restocking fees, especially for large quantity or custom orders.

Any packages that are returned to me as unclaimed or non-deliverable will be refunded the cost of the items on the order, but not the shipping charges. If the item was custom and you do not wish to purchase it again, there will be a restocking fee.

Shipping policies

Most items ship via USPS 2-day Priority mail within 3 days of payment. Most often orders ship out the next day.

I DO NOT OFFER EXPRESS SHIPPING. Your order will be shipped via USPS Priority mail. It will arrive in 2 or 3 days (if you are in the USA). That is the fastest service I can provide. Even if you ask for express shipping in the notes section of the order, your order will still be shipped via USPS Priority 2-3 day mail.

I will not ship using UPS, FedEx, DHL or whatever other company you like. I ship via USPS.

Please allow extra shipping time for orders with a custom keystroke. If your keystroke is not on the list, I may not have a code ready to load onto your button. I can make the code, but it takes a bit of extra time to get it done.

For orders of ten or more buttons, standard domestic shipping is on me. Send me a convo, though, and I'll make you a custom listing for large quantities.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: International orders are shipped via USPS Priority International, which takes 6-10 days, if everything goes smoothly. You are responsible for tracking your package through to your own country's postal website. If your package is held and you do not claim it, it will most likely be sent back to me, at which point I will refund the price of the item minus the shipping cost. You may not be notified of the package being held. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TRACK THE PACKAGE TO MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT GET RETURNED. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPORT TAXES IN YOUR COUNTRY. Also, please note that some countries take extra time to process packages containing electronics. I've sent packages to Brazil that have been received 6 weeks after I sent them. I only ship via USPS. It's the most reliable shipping company in the United States and also the least expensive for shipping internationally. I am not responsible for your purchase of items that your country will not allow to be imported. If you buy something from me and it isn't allowed in your country, you will not get a refund unless the item is returned to me in good condition. If the package is returned in good condition, I will refund the cost of the item only, not the shipping charge.

ATTENTION UK CUSTOMERS: The customs officials in your country WILL apply an import tax on your order and WILL hold your package in customs until YOU CONTACT THEM! If you do not contact them within 30 days they will return your package to me. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TRACK YOUR PACKAGE THROUGH TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY AT ROYALMAIL.COM using the tracking number provided to you in the email that etsy sent. Yes, you can use that tracking number on the royal mail website even though it was generated by USPS. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for the import tax, or the delay in shipping that your customs officials will cause.

FAQs

The buttons are pre-programmed before shipping to the keystroke that you specify. They work just like a USB keyboard. If you can type a keystroke or key-combination or keyboard shortcut on your computer to do a certain task, I can assign your button to send that keystroke. Multiple keystrokes, such as CTRL+ALT+S, are possible. Also possible are strings of characters. For instance, I can program a button to type the word "start" and then press the ENTER key. Additionally, left or right mouse clicks are possible, as well as the media keys on Apple computers.

No. Please do not contact me about expedited shipping. My standard shipping methods are very fast for the price, and there isn't much I can do to get an item to you faster. If you order something on Monday, and need it on Friday, feel free to mention that in the order, and I'll do what I can to get your order out ASAP. But if you place an order on Monday and need it on Wednesday, you can't be upset with me when it arrives on Thursday. Plan ahead.
Yes. These buttons work with Windows, OSx, iOS, Linux, and nearly anything that has a USB port and will recognize a keyboard. They appear to a computer as a Generic USB HID. I've even connected them to ETC lighting consoles. No drivers are needed, no software is necessary.
Sorry, I don't do quantity discounts. The price for 1 is the same as the price for 100. However, for orders of 10 or more units, shipping is free to US addresses. If you'd like to place a large quantity order, email dave@usbbuttons.com with your quantity, desired button style and color, desired keystroke, and shipping address.
