Step 62: Handle/Electronics: Momentary Switch Installation 1

Now we need to take a break from the hub and work on a switch. You need to get the rest of your flashlight disassembled.

This flashlight is just press-fit together. You can pop the LEDs out of the front with pressure from a screwdriver. You can pop the switch from the tailcap by carefully applying lots of pressure to the switch. We will not be using the switch(because it is a "push-on, push off" type), so don't be too worried about destroying it if you have to. Remove the switch from the black plastic tailcap piece. Leave the rubber cover in place.
