They are available in many different colors and configurations.

Our slide is air powered but the switch is still electric.

Thanks, I tried them but couldn't find it as a stock item and not seeing it in that list - ?? Does not look like any of those have the locking button. There are a bazillion configurations of those switches. I was just looking to buy the actuator piece, not the whole switch.

I think the second switch in series idea is a simple and effective solution and the parts are a lot easier to get.

I'm sure that somewhere similar to DigiKey must have them. Try Mouser - I found the spec sheet for these switches at this link. Note that there are no fewer than 13 different things you can specify regarding this switch. The Function section lets you get a lock. I don't know the required electrical characteristics.

To the OP:
Now that your DW knows where the switch is, maybe the issue is moot?
