Nikon / Pocket Wizard Cable - 3 Here is a view of the assembled switch box. The cable from the MC-27 comes into the box through the rubber grommet on the left. It also passes through a small washer which is backed up with a cable tie. The washer and cable tie are one of two strain reliefs to avoid pulling any wires loose if the cable should get pulled hard. The braided shield from the cable is twisted together and soldered to one side of the DPDT switch (Only one side of the switch is needed) to work as a secondary strain relief. The WHITE wire is wired to the center pole of the switch, as it is the wire that controls if the meter stays on or allows the camera to go to sleep. The PURPLE wire connects to one side of the switch, and then continues on to the TIP of the 1/8" audio jack on the right side of the box. The YELLOW wire connects to the other side of the switch, and then continues on to the COMMON (Ground) side of the 1/8" audio jack on the right.
