Determine where you would like to put the switch. The most common place to put it is directly between the power supply and the item being powered.
Find the positive wire—most likely red—going from the power supply to the item. Cut it with the wire cutters, preferably about in the middle of the wire's length.
Use the wire strippers to strip 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the cut ends of the wire.
Attach the two stripped ends to the two terminals of the switch. Most simple switches have two terminals and are wired inline. If the terminals are of the screw variety, loosen the screw with a screwdriver, wrap the stripped wire around the screw, and then tighten it.
If the terminals are not of the screw variety, or if a better connection is desired, use the soldering iron and solder to solder the connection, ensuring that it is tight and electrically sound.
If necessary or desired, mount the switch to the chassis of the powered item. This helps prevent wear and tear on the wires and prevents short-circuiting.
Always make sure the switch is rated for the current that you will be passing through it. Passing too high of a current through a switch will result in switch failure at best, and a short circuit or a fire at worst.
