You need a 1N4004 for the switch diode.
Your other option is to pull the wires out of the connector if you have the pin removal too and then feed them through. A little less of a pain in the backside that way.
Quoted from Mocean:
Any way to tell if your switches are low voltage or high voltage? I found some new switches in my stash, but I don't recall what type they are...
I think the easiest way to tell is to just look at the contacts. The tungsten (silver looking) ones are the high voltage/current switches and the gold-plated ones are for low voltage. Also, low voltage EOS switches are typically normally open.
See my picture below, normally open WPC fliptronic switch on the left, normally closed non-fliptronic on the right.
