# Type of switch that connects three inputs together?

Okay, I'm having a stupid moment, here. I need a momentary push button switch that simply shorts three inputs together. If you pardon my crude ASCII art, this is what I'm talking about:

Code:
    _
__|__
-◦  ◦  ◦-
'
What is that called? Yes, I know I could simulate that with a DPST and short some of the poles to my third wire, but is there such a thing as the switch I'm looking for?

I don't think it is a standard switch of any kind, but that doesn't mean that someone hasn't made it at some point (it would probably mean that some high volume application needed such a switch and the cost savings per switch was sufficient to justify the non-recurring engineering costs to make it).

Not that I'm aware of as a catalog standard item. What don't you like about a DPST pushbutton switch. C&K, E-Switch, Alpha, Alps, NKK, Alco, ITT, etc.
