Mini Power Switch With a Vibration Switch

This is regarding : https://www.pololu.com/product/2808

I would like to use a mechanical spring vibration switch like SW-18010P to pulse the ON pin, have that secure the latch and then later (when vibration is no longer present) my microcontroller will drive the OFF pin high. During the entire time the latch is active and the switch is in ON state, the the mechanical spring will be pulsing the ON pin. I realize this will interfere with turning it off, but wanted to check if there would be any other drawbacks.

Thanks!

I suspect that your approach might work. However, to get a sense of just how reliable that method would be, it is probably more straightforward to actually test the devices together.
