1. A switch mechanism, comprising:
a first switching member configured to reciprocally move straight in a direction;
a second switching member configured to reciprocally move straight in the direction, the first switching member and the second switching member being disposed close to each other so that an operator can operate the first switching member and the second switching member by his or her one hand;
a first crank member mounted for rotation about a first axis, the first crank member being engaged with the first switching member so that the first crank member reciprocally rotates about the first axis as the first switching member reciprocally moves straight;
a second crank member mounted for rotation about a second axis, the second crank member being engaged with the second switching member so that the second crank member reciprocally rotates about the second axis as the second switch member reciprocally moves straight;
a first slider mounted on the first crank member;
a second slider mounted on the second crank member;
a printed circuit board;
a first wiring pattern printed on the circuit board, the first wiring pattern being disposed so that the first slider makes contacts with the first wiring pattern during the rotation of the first crank member; and
a second wiring pattern printed on the circuit board, the second wiring pattern being disposed so that the second slider makes contacts with the second wiring pattern during the rotation of the second crank member.
