Step 6: Attach the LED
You will need to pull apart the legs of the LED a little, but trying to keep them roughly parallel. They need to be about 5mm (1/4") apart, but this is not super critical.
Now push one leg underneath the cell (will go between the card and foam), and the other leg should go above the cell.
If you have done it correct, when you press down on the leg which is on top of the cell, the LED should glow purple.
If it doesn't glow at all, pull it out, rotate it 180 degrees (so the opposite leg is on the bottom), and put it back in.
If it glows all the time (without pushing), you will need to pull it out, spread the legs further apart, and put it back in again.
