Default XLCR Switch modification

Hi all,

looking for a way to change the way the turn signals work on my XLCR. Can't get the hang of having to keep my thumb on the buttons to keep them working. The original micro switches (OEM 71484-72) are just push-to-make. I'm after the same micro switch, but in a push-to-make, push-to-break mode, so I can just push the button, to make the turn signals work, then push it again to cancel them, rather than having to keep my thumb pressed on the button all the time. I've been to my local Maplins but they don't have anything. I've also seen a module on the J&P Cycle site which I could use:

but if there's a switch available I'd sooner do it that way. Any pointers appreciated
Looks like this:
