Intro: How to Make an LED Fly Swatter Switch
Step 1: Create Your Schematic
For this step you need to figure out how you will wire the fly swatter to the batter to create a switch using aluminum foil on the fly swatter as the switch itself.
Step 2: Now Let's Add the Aluminum Foil
Make sure you add a piece of foil to the fly swatter and attach the wire to the foil.
For this switch, you can solder the inside wires of a telephone cable to wire coming down the fly swatter.
Step 4: Attach to Power
The wires connecting to the aluminum on the fly swatter need to be connected to power on something like a 9v battery.
Step 5: Attach the LED
The LED needs to be attached to ground directly and then the positive leg of the LED needs to be attached to a resistor and run straight to the piece of foil, this is a different piece of foil than is on the fly swatter, and when this piece touches the fly swatter, it will complete the circuit.
Step 6: Details of the Battery
Check to make sure your battery is wired correctly.
Step 7: Check Your LED
Check to make sure your LED is wired correctly
