Night-Owl Alarm

Step 2: Install the power switch.

Once you have your fake owl, the first thing you're going to want to do is install an on/off rocker switch. My fake owl came with a fake log. I decided to install my switch in that.

The first thing I did was cut a hole with my cutter that was approximately the size of the switch I was using. As well, I cut a small hole into the base of the log.

Then I soldered two long black wires to the terminals on the switch.

After that, it was a simple matter of unscrewing the black plastic clamp from the back of the switch, fishing the two black wires through the base of the fake owl and pushing the switch into place.

Finally, the clamp should be run along the two wires until it hits the back of the switch.

Screw it back into place.
