Hello, I need a on/off switch that lights up when it’s ON and is hard to switch, so it won’t accidently turn ON. What kind of switch should I use for this purpose? Can I use a enginge start switch? The current I’ll use is from a 9 volt battery (PP3 alkaline and CRV9 lithium)

There are a lot of switches that are flush so you have to push them in the center to operate.
But when you say "hard to switch", to what lenghts do you need to go to? Switches with covers are available, as are key poerated ones, and various interlocked types.
