Button Hardware

Use the hex nuts that came with the RGB LED button. An additional o-ring is 3d printed in flexible filament. The o-ring helps to secure the hex nut onto the threading of the button. Without it, the hex nut cannot be fully seated into the hilt to panel mount the button.

Install Cables in Hilt

Start by insert the two cables from the button through the hole for the button in the hilt.

Pull the two cables through the top opening of the hilt.

Install Hex Nut and O-Ring

First, insert the two cables through the o-ring. Then, slip the hex nut over.

Double check the order is correct. First the o-ring, then the hex nut. Got it? Ok!

Thread Cables in Hilt

Begin to insert the two cable back into the hilt.

Ensure the hex nuts are position so they can be fitted onto the button.

Use both hands to maneuver the cables through the hilt while maintaining the o-ring and hex nut.

Secured Button to Hilt

Begin to panel mount the button by pushing it into the hole in the hilt. Insert the o-ring onto the threading. Then, fasten the hex nut onto the button until it has a tight fitting.

Tweezers can be used to help grab hold of the hex nut.

Secured Button

Press the button a few times to see if it has a tight fit on the hilt.

Hilt Check

The two cables should stick out the bottom of the hilt. These are rather lengthy in order to connect to the PropMaker FeatherWing.
