1. A switch assembly, comprising:
a housing comprising a base and a sidewall defining an interior space, the base comprising a planar surface for mounting on another planar surface;
a shell mounted to the housing, the shell comprising an interior switch contact surface, the shell cooperating with the base and sidewall of the housing to enclose the interior space;
circuitry including a switch comprised in the interior space;
a resilient arm unitary with the base, the resilient arm projecting from the base and from behind the circuitry into the interior space;
the shell movable from a disengaged position to an actuating position in response to force applied to an exterior of the shell, the interior switch contact surface actuating the switch in the actuating position, the resilient arm configured to engage the shell in the actuating position to return the shell to the disengaged position.
