To the white wire connected to the switch I attached the positive battery connector. I made a small hole in the side of the connector to let the negative connector wire through (next step).

To insulate the battery compartment I rolled up a small piece of paper pushed it inside the drilled out nuts. I glued a piece of paper (insulation) to the sawed off end of the screw and glued a small spring on top of that.
