Honeywell Micro Switch Basic Snap-Action Switches—Snap-action switches work like limit switches except that they utilize a pin or plunger actuator rather than a lever. Basic snap-action switches are typically used in simple on/off, presence/absence, or end-of-limit applications. See Article - "Basic Switches are Not Created Equal".
