Default Kryton Groove Keyswitch Mod

Hey 'yall,
I just modded my Kryton with a key switch because the clickys that come with it both failed.
So I thought I would share with you.

Pictures 1,2, and 4 are dead, but from the third picture it looks like it has a keyswitch?

That looks nice. Is it the only switch? I mean, do you need a key every time you turn on your laser?

Yes, it's a maplin switch, this one: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=2445 &lt;-- Gotta love maplin.
What have done is taken out all the parts for the stock switch, I inserted the keyswitch in it's place. I then had to epoxy mine in as I lost the retaining nut but you I guess you could use that insted. Once the switch was firmly in position, I connected one pin to the kryton case and another to a spring. That's it. I also got a bit of metal and used it to cover the slot that lets the key out when the laser is on because I found that I the key falls out and I have to scramble around looking for the key with an on laser.
