By far the best (most robust, heavy duty, etc.) are the foot switches used 
by musical instrument players (keyboards, etc.).  We started buying those a 
few years ago from the local music instrument store.  Reasonably priced and 
come equipped with a 1/4" mono plug already installed.  Never had a failure 
to date.  YMMV.  And no, I don't own any stock in those companies.
