    Hello
    it's a switch which returns at his original position with a spring. So yeah I think it could be easily used for a Pc. It makes contact then goes 'off', just like a classic Pc power button, or as you would do with a screwdriver ^^.
    Voltage and ampere rating are way above the requirements for a pc switch.
    totally ok so

    "Toggle off return spring" Reads like a momentary kill switch to me. The wording is kinda sloppy.

    I see your point: it might be a switch to open the circuit instead of closing it.
    BTW I would rather buy on farnell/RS etc to get actual technical drawings

    But I searched for the reference and got this: https://www.narva.com.au/products/60045BL . So it looks like it's a switch to momentary close the circuit, so to switch on.

    I've used momentary switches before on a few projects and they're fine as long as they return to the open position.
