Single pole surface mounted 12v switches?

I'm planning on installing some LED strips in my galley and they do not have built-in switches. I'd like to find a single pole surface mounted switch to mount on a bulkhead nearby but I've been having a hard time sourcing such a thing that's compact, reasonably priced, and attractive. Any ideas?

Try Switches - Blue Sea Systems for a variety of switch types that are SPST

Two possibilities come to mind: a simple SPST toggle switch and a "marine" push-pull switch. Both would require a smallish hole in a panel for mounting, with the wires concealed behind the panel. Easy to find at West Marine or any convenient marine store.

Don't forget to fuse the circuit.

Did you ever find a good switch for this application? I am looking for the same thing to switch LED string lights in 4 different places in my boat.
