    I ordered a micro tilt switch D6BN-1(P) from digi-key but just realized I have no idea how to mount it for my circuit. Can I just solder two wires(+,-) on the metallic side? It is just a tiny square and I have no idea what Ièm supposed to do to use it.

    Here is a picture:

    Thanks, I appreciate your help.

    It has 4 metal leads sticking out, 2 on each of 2 opposite sides.

    The data sheet (such as it is) isn't too specific, but I imagine it has V+, Gnd, and signal output pins. The 4th is probably not connected to anything.

    You need to solder the device to a PCB (it's surface mount) and then connect wires to that. If you use an appropriate amount of PCB material, you can drill holes in it (or whatever) to allow the device to be mounted and oriented as you desire.

    You say you bought it from Digikey, yet you give us the datasheet from Mouser?!?! Why? Especially when the one from Digikey s actually the correct datasheet.

    Read that and you'll find the answers to all of your questions. And not all of mine are strictly correct.
