Default ON/OFF Switches

I know I am not the only one thinking about stuff this analytically. I want to replace the switch for my ESC. The one my LRP came with is bulky and difficult to mount without using CA. About once a month I have to reattach it becasue with out CA the force of turning it on and off loosens the tape I use. I am looking for something easy to zip tie or screw down. Or if you have an ingenious way of mounting your switch I would love to see it. I just want something that looks smooth and is secure with out being permanent.

shoe goo you can make it look good and it isn't permanent. but it wont come loose. or youm could swap it out for a older novak GT7 style switch that has a screw hole in it.

something like this maybe. But smaller and not momentary. A push button on off maybe?

MIP servo tape really hold better than any other tape, or a little shoe-goo.
