You will also need a terminal wire nut as shown below.

Remove the rubber washer and cut and protruding pieces off the switch top (if any).

Measure the middle of the circle and mark it.

Drill out the center

NOTE:  If you use the Radio Shack switch, you do not need to reinstall the rubber washer shown above.

Install the switch.

Cut the stalk off the switch to about 1/2"

Install the terminal nut over the switch stalk and secure.
