Default Smoke system push button latch relay

I purchased Tosten military style stick grips (Awesome company BTW) and instead of putting a 2nd toggle switch for the smoke system (already one for flaps) I elected to put a momentary push button and thought I could simply wire it thru a latch relay and click once for on and once for off. I have a smoke arm master switch on the panel. Problem is when calling Mouser or Digi-key they need coil amperage, contact current rating, SPDT<SPST, etc.... and a whole list of other questions to even begin to sort thru the over 300 "latch" relays they sell. That is all a foreign language to me so I was wondering if any electrical engineers are out there with the knowledge for this.

So has anybody out there done this and maybe just have a part number readily available for this elusive "latch relay" to accomplish this task??

Thank in advance
Billy

I happen to know a little bit about that product (having designed and built it) and can answer any questions you might have about it.
