    That's what Mike was saying, but it would really be hard to work the button the same way with your foot.

    Oh, it's hideous! Yet at the same time I think it looks kind of cool in a 1980s industrial quasi futuristic kind of way.

    I don't think I'm nearly up to trying to drill a bunch of holes through metal, but if I make another one, I may consider getting some shielding tape. It's just something to mess around with, though. If I like it that much, I'll actually install them on my guitars.

    if you could find something like a cell phone clip and attach it to the box so you can remote mount it to the belt on your pants, you wouldn't have to be so cautious about moving it around and it fall off.

    The suction cup actually holds on just fine, and the button being on your belt would be really inconvenient if you're picking and working the killswitch.

    Side note... if you have a 'normally closed' momentary switch, just have the switch connect your ground and hot wires.
