Sourcing the power switches for 1084S monitors

What kind of switch is this? Mine was broken, and I desoldered it and binned the switch long ago, but now I want to try and find a new one on the Internet... It doesn't seem to be one of those standard ones you find in an AT/ATX PSU...

I replaced mine with a 1/2" on-off toggle switch from Radio Shack. Fit well and easy to find.

These links do not work anymore but here are some with relatively close switches:

This one has the same voltage characteristics:

This one does not look too bad either:
(Got it from there: http://www.retro-commodore.eu/2014/0...h-replacement/.)

And there are other links from this Lemon64 post:

I have two of these monitors with failed switches so I will likely be buying four switches, possibly from different models to see which ones work. Likely two from the first link and two from the second.

If they work fine, I will report here.
