Step 3: Re-route power leads


The battery holder will be installed into the Altoids tin so that the side of the holder with the included power leads will be adjacent to the side of the tin that includes the hinges for the tin top. This is a really tight fit; almost like it was planned. But in order for the battery holder to fit nicely into the tin the power leads must be routed out of the bottom of the holder.

The red and black power leads extend from the battery compartments to the outside of the holder via a couple of round holes. Pull the leads into the battery compartment. Then re-route them to the outside via the rectangular holes in the bottom of the holder which are very close to the original exit holes you just pulled them through. See the images below.
