Illuminated Door Exit Switch.

Introduction: Illuminated Door Exit Switch.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

I wanted an easy to locate switch for my door solenoid lock. The original works but it's just not eye catching.

Step 1: Removing the Bland Switch.

I just plain cut the wiring off the old switch. I put it away in storage.

Step 2: Making a Hole for the New Switch.

The new pushbutton switch needed a 22mm hole in the mounting plate. I used a hole saw to make it.

Step 3: Wiring the New Switch.

Using my soldering station I wired up the new switch. Sadly the hole I cut was a bit bigger than 22mm so I kept the lock nut in the front and a cable tie to keep it in place in the back.

Step 4: Completion!

The new switch is led lighted and looks so much cooler!
