All credit goes to Makezine and Make.com. I found this project in a make magazine and copied it almost exactly. I just brought it to Instructables to spread the idea.
1. Recording Module
3. Aluminum foil/ Aluminum tape
5. Small metal strip
6. 1 gallon milk bottle cap or anything of the same size
Step 1: Rig the Switch
Then, if the button is separate, just cut the button off and strip the tips of the wires.
If the button is on the circuit board, remove the button by lifting up the pins underneath the circuit board. (Refer to the picture). Then, solder wires to each contact point.
Step 2: Set Up Clothespin
Then, take your rubber band and wrap it around the tip of the clothespin. Move it around and add or subtract windings until the rubber band opens and closes with ease.
Now, put aluminum foil or aluminum tape on each jaw of the clothespin.
Step 3: Finishing It Up
Bend the metal strip so that when the clothespin is open the metal strip is flat. Attach it to the clothespin.
Now, just add batteries and set everything up. You can tape everything together for neatness.
