little help wiring a momentary switch needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a couple of momentary buttons/switches in my parts stash, I have one I would prefer to use on an open air case I am building, essentially its a double momentary switch, default position is in he center and you can flip it up, or down and have it automatically pop right back to center, I have tons of power switches from old cases, I just need to cut their switch off, and solder the wires to it, figure up can be power and down can be reset. Now comes the hard part....how on earth do I do it, total of 6 prongs and I don't know what goes where

Thanks ahead of time - TLP

What you have is a double pole - double throw switch.
It's like two switches (each with two "on" positions) in one case.

You can use a multimeter (or just a battery/bulb) to see how it works.

Generally it's power in to the center contacts and power out from the upper and lower contacts.
