What does the micro switch look like and how does it work with the door?

You mount it on the door frame with a small pc of alum angle and the door depresses the switch. Here is one with a roller, but they come with just a flat blade also. They are just small push button switches.

Got the outlet added below the door side window. Now have to make the molding for the wall/floor/cabinet. Have to cover TOWTA's car first or else it will get dusty. Can't put it outside as it's raining.

Went to Home Goods, bought a letter holder for $9.99, drilled a few holes in it and here you go.

Great idea! The DW and I have been looking for a way to organize electronics in the house and the camper. Going to have to show her this!

Sorry about the sideways picture. I had a 50% chance of getting right.
