1/4" (6.3mm) quick-disconnect ends were crimped onto wires and installed on the switches. Wires were left long so they could be trimmed when the exact distance was known.

Wired switches

A reed switch had a couple wires soldered to the ends and heat-shrink tubing held everything together. No good method, aside from glue, was decided for adhering the switch in the middle of the device.

All switch wires were run to a circuit board which was arranged next to where the controller will be mounted. The circuit board held a 2x3 header socket identical to the one used for the controller circuit board. A jumper cable will go between the two when the device is closed up. The six connections were perfect for the cable, GND, reed, switch1, switch2, switch3, and switch4.
