A switch does little more than connect or disconnect the conduction of electricity. This, of course, makes the light of your lamp go on or off. Follow the steps below to connect your switch:
Determine the approximate location where you want to mount the switch or cable switch. Mark this spot with masking tape. Once you are sure that the power is off, you can cut the wire.
Strip off the sheath at both ends of the wire. This only needs to be about half a centimetre long.
Open the switch. Here you can see 4 contact points. Unscrew the small screws and remove the plastic strips from your switch. These are meant to hold the lamp cord in place. Press the copper ends of your wire into the screw holes. The order doesn't matter, as long as the colours correspond.
Mounting the cord switch
Now mount the plastic strips over the wire so that it stays in place. Then you can reassemble the lamp switch. Put your cord under power and test whether your switch works.
