This is a very simple Sugru project to mold and secure the switch to a bread board. I had built police lights and siren using an Arduino Uno, LEDs and a Piezo buzzer. To turn the buzzer on and off, but keep the lights on, I added a rocker switch as the negative connection's interupt. However, the switch was not secured to anything, so it was a pain to actually use it.

Step 1: Switch Placement

The switch was originally floating in the air from the solid 22 gauge wire. After shortening the wire and stripping it with wire cutters, I placed the switch to the front of the bread board.

Step 2: Wrap in Sugru & Let Dry

The Sugru was first added to the rocker switch connectors because I hadn't soldered them into place. Next I wrapped the entire side structure of the switch and connected it to the side of the bread board. After shaping it and flattening the bottom, I let the Sugru dry. Note: so the Sugru didn't dry and adhere to the table, I kept the board and Sugru elevated off any surface.

Now, the switch is easy to use!

<p>Hi</p><p>I want to turn on and turn off <br>my LED table study lamp by moving my hand over a sensor. Hand over tuns <br>on the light and hand over again to turn off the light. A very simple switch actually. Do I need a infrared sensor and a <br>flip flap? </p><p>What do you suggest?</p><p>A simple one and as small as possible!!</p>
Smart idea! Thanks for shearig :)
<p>Nice and simple!</p>
