Battery Saver

Introduction: Battery Saver

So my girlfriend has this electric air pump, but when its floating in the bag with the kayak it turns on sometimes. So I glued this tab just like when you buy a new electronic device it has that plastic tab that you have to remove.
Yep, that simple.

Step 1: Battery Saver

My girlfriend has this electric air pump that has a tendency to turn on when its floating around with the kayak. So I glued a piece of plastic just like the kind that blocks the battery of a new electronic.
Yep, its just that simple.

Step 2: Snip Snip Plastic

I'm not going to be to thorough on this one. But I used the plastic from a cottage cheese container cut in a way that when I want to use it I just bend it out of the way to use the pump. I'd recommend bending it a few times to get bend right....or something.

Step 3: Use It or Store It

Now just glue it in place where it will can be bent and break the circuit, and still be out of the way when it's bent.
