Using the on/off switch with the new Blue enclosure
#7
I wired my switch by crimping pair of Molex gold plated (the plating is important so it matches the plating on the header pins of the board) SL terminals (Molex Part Number: 16-02-0097) to a pair of 24 AWG wires and adding some heat shrink over most of the terminals to support the wires and help prevent shorting.  I then soldered the other ends of the wires to the switch terminals with heat shrink covering those connections.  The terminals are small enough to fit in the space available.  Works fine.

Another caution about the housing.  In addition to finding machine chips in the housing, I found chips in the LED holes.  Also, all the edges of the housing and panels are way too sharp.  They are NOT safety edges.  The edges on all the metal parts and the holes should have been rounded.  The LEDs and switch will mount more easily and you won't hurt your hands/fingers.
