Attaching Endstops to Plates

Hello, I am getting so close to finishing assembly of my MPCNC and I am struggling to get the endstop wires connected. The included switches and the amazon kit I bought both have the connectors coming straight out the back and the crimp connectors push up against the bearing next to the mounting plate before I can get the holes lined up. The photo of the switches connected on the thingiverse file show only the outside so I can’t see how the wires are connected to the switches. Do I need some special 90 degree crimps or am I just missing something completely?

You can either bend the paddles or cut the connectors off and solder them directly.

Just be careful if you bend them. The switches are cheap and can break.

Agreed, I just gently bent them up. I have better luck doing so with the connector attached.

Correct, it is a wonky mount that requires tabs to be bent to clear properly - or do like I did - reverse the setup. Mount the switches on tube-clamps instead.
