Prep Wires

Measure, cut and strip two pieces of 30AWG silicone-coated stranded wire.

Tin Wires and Switch 

Use a pair of helping third hands to secure wires/switch in place. Appy small amount of solder to the tips of the wires and the terminals on the slide switch.

Connect Wires to Switch

Solder both wires to two terminals on the slide switch (one in the center, and another next to that). Cut a piece of shrink tubing and slide that onto the wire to cover it up. Apply some heat to secure the connections. 

Trim off the unused terminals on the side switch.

Slide Switch

The slide switch is now ready for some action! Let's set it aside and get to the next section.
