Contest Brief

I have this product, but the button at the end does not work for my needs:

You can see in the attached picture the placement of the button, but it is too tall, has a curved back and is too hard to press.

What I am looking for is a circular rubber waterproof button 1-1.5 cm in diameter and no higher than .5 cm that is easy to push (easy meaning the same pressure as required for your average remote control button) and that has an adhesive back to it for mounting it on to a carbon fiber surface. I have the end of the wire with the correct connector that I can splice the button to so all I need is the button with 5-10 cm of wires coming out of it.

It will be mounted on the top of this bicycle brake: [login to view URL]

Specifically it will be on the top mostly flat (but not completely flat) part of the brake just in front of the person's skin in the first picture.

Selection will be based on:
1. a picture showing what it will look like
2. measurements of the width and height
3. an explanation of how it is waterproof
4. having an adhesive back to it.

The winner will make and mail me the two buttons with 5-10 cm of wire extending from each one. The parts should be relatively inexpensive - less than $10 and shipping since it is tiny from anywhere in the world less than $5 and so I made the project $50 + $10 +$5 = $65

I am not an engineer so please ask any questions that I did not specify well enough in this description.

Please include a picture of what the button looks like.
