Introduction: Illuminated Door Exit Switch.

About: As of April 2017 I have decided to no longer post on instructables. The fact that several of my published works have been removed without my consent is inexcusable. Also the insult of an author having no co...

I wanted an easy to locate switch for my door solenoid lock. The original works but it's just not eye catching.

Step 1: Removing the Bland Switch.

I just plain cut the wiring off the old switch. I put it away in storage.

Step 2: Making a Hole for the New Switch.

The new pushbutton switch needed a 22mm hole in the mounting plate. I used a hole saw to make it.

Step 3: Wiring the New Switch.

Using my soldering station I wired up the new switch. Sadly the hole I cut was a bit bigger than 22mm so I kept the lock nut in the front and a cable tie to keep it in place in the back.

Step 4: Completion!

The new switch is led lighted and looks so much cooler!
