Broken\missing Switch on Jabra Bluetooth 530 Headset

I had a few year old Jabra headset that the power switch broke on.  It worked perfectly fine otherwise, it was just stuck in the "On" position all the time.

It was past warranty, and Jabra does not offer a replacement part, so I simply took it apart (the case pries open if your careful) and noticed the physical switch was covered by the side of the case.  I simply took an X-acto knife and removed the small piece of plastic that covered the switch, and now i can get to it with a pen or other small pointy object.

I just could not justify purchasing a new ($40-60) headset for a simple quick fix I found to get to the switch.

My cut marks are in red on the photo.  The micro switch is in Blue.
