Default Levers for Air button switches on ATTC

On the All Terrain Track Chair (ATTC), i have air bag shocks on the suspension, and air cylinders for track tension, and these need some means of adjusting air pressure.
I implemented some off-the-shelf air switches w/ gauges that were easy to hook up, however, the air switches have tiny buttons, and during the demo to the client, he struggled to activate them. He needed to have a much easier way of pressing on the buttons with his hands that are permanently in a curled position.
I came up with these levers, where each lever activates a pair of switches. 1 switch is for air up, 1 switch is for air release. There are a total of 8 switches that are now activated with 4 levers.

Here's a video that explains the whole thing:
