Buttons are a switch mechanism for controlling objects in the Baldi's Basics series.


Buttons appear as orange rubbery spheres attached to gray rectangles.


Pressing the button will change or activate nearby structures in several ways:

While conveyor belts will change the direction right after pressing the button, the player has to wait for roto-halls and lockdown doors to be completely activated in order to reactivate them.


Main gameplay


A button on a wall.

A button in the Principal's office.

The buttons are found attached to walls in all locations in the Super Schoolhouse, excluding Baldi's Office, and the mystery room. It is possible to have two buttons in a single floor.
