Eliminate Standby Power with a Desktop Power Switch!


Step 4: Box Assembly

Picture of Box Assembly
Now we will put everything in the desktop box. Start with the switch by threading the wire through the hole, positioning the switch, then firmly tightening the nut. Before installing the LED, you may need to cut away any ridges in the box with a Dremel to allow the LED to sit flush with the inside of the box. Then clean out the box of plastic shavings, insert the LED, and superglue it in place. Give it some time to dry and collect its thoughts.
After the glue dries, put the wires through the cable wrap. It might help to wrap both ends in tape to keep them together. Next, feed some cable wrap through the box and zip-tie it in place on the inside and outside. Schweet! Your box is done!
