This one has lived on my most-requested-product list for a long time. Horn buttons. Horn buttons that would match my badges to be specific. Tons of folks have asked me to make these.
I’m a huge steering wheel enthusiast. I have nine currently if you count the two that are actually in the Miatas right now.
IF was never the question, it was just WHEN.
I’m extremely proud to present the initial offering of revlimiter Horn Buttons!
It took quite a while to source a horn button that didn’t suck. I tried a lot of different brands. I stopped counting toward the end, but I think I tried buttons from more than 10 manufacturers.
The cheap ones that you find on the auction sites really are not wonderful to press. Either they feel soggy or there’s barely any motion between horn-off and horn-on. And the plastic feels cheap. And they are rarely “round.”
The horn buttons I’m using are made in Italy. They’re extremely high quality and are wonderful to press. I’ve been using one for a bit over a month. It has worked great.
The button features a dual ground setup. It can ground through the steering column like most Momo buttons do, or you can plug a dedicated ground wire into the terminal on the side. The center terminal is the horn signal wire.
The same horn button can be used on quite a few wheels. I’ve tried it on MOMO, Sparco, and Nardi. It fits them all. Momo fitment requires removing the silver horn retaining ring that fits between the hub and wheel. To fit the button on a Nardi, you need to install the Nardi-spec horn retainer ring.
But enough about the button. Here’s some pretty pix.
The buttons are up in my store right now. Initial sale price is $49 USD each plus shipping. That’s on the level of most mass-market horn buttons (not made in China) and leaves a bit of profit margin. Not bad for a bespoke, hand made product.
I hope folks enjoy these and they sell well. However, even if they’re a flop, I get to make any horn button I want for my own collection. That was pretty much the goal of this project all along.
