My suggestion RD is to solder the wires direct on to the pcb, there is no need to use those high pins to soldet to.
if you solder direct to the pcb, you can lay down the wires neat and tifgt on each side.

First I removed the connectors and soldered the wires straight on the PCB. That makes a smaller PCB and it allows better positionning inside the handle
To fix the PCB inside the casing I will probably use hot glue
That's what I did :)

Ohe.... missed that 😁🍺

It would be a big help to post some pics of everything, RD. Then we may be able to help figure it out.

RD,

How did you remove the switch top off the RDR Cursor?  I can't seem to figure that out?

Ah, there we go.  I managed to get mine off somehow.  But what size are those allen bolts?  Mine are either too small or too big?

Roger that Olivier, the hot glue will work great. I use Velcro though just in case I ever have to remove it. Also, the thickness of the Velcro sometimes becomes an advantage as a standoff. Also makes a great insulator as you can usually cover the back of a PCB. But then again so does hot glue.
