Solder the wires to pin COM and NO. NO stands for normally open. COM stands for Common Terminal.
The switch housing (18mm wide) is made from a roof sheet metal. For those who are familiar with sheet metal, bending them should be easy. Then punch or drill two varying size holes on them. One side is (EDIT 9/32") hole and the other is 3/16 hole. I have an arbor press which is set up for this purpose. I'm not aware of a place to get this item other than to show people how make them or get it from me. I can send the housing for $3 to cover shipping. Or buy a completed unit.
