Or just cut the wire off the current one and add a 3.5mm jack on the end.
    That would work just fine to splice in the other end instead of the 3.5mm plug. Is the switch assembly an off the shelf component that can be replaced easily when the installed one malfunctions?

    The switch itself is a readily available 12mm tact switch, it will be soldered to a custom PCB. Granted it's not much of a reassurance with how new I am here, but if something happened to it I would be willing to fix it.

    I'll buy one if you start making them.

    So slight hiccup. Digi-key sent my parts to the wrong address and they are re-sending them. Not the biggest set back. Just means that the date gets pushed out. Looking at 2 1/2 weeks out now. I have to wait till the parts are in to place the order on the PCB's...
