@Kukki,

Thanks for the pictures and suggestion.  I found a solution that seems to work. 

Figure 1
[attach=11}[/attach,msg165480][/attach]  <== @AiRdAncE (The new in-line attachments BBCode is not working. When I preview my post it says I'm not allowed to view attachments. Then if I save the post, it changes the BBCode to what you see here. I had to use the old very tedious method.)


Refer to Figure 1 above, I cut a square piece (black lines) of .090" aluminum about the same size as square mount tab.  I then cut a hole in the center (white lines) slightly larger than the 1.25" diameter opening of the mount tab.  I had to make a small notch (yellow lines) at the bottom of this square so that it would slip around the slap switch assembly.  I then marked and drilled holes in this piece of aluminum and threaded them for #6-32 100º Flat Head screws that match up with the countersunk holes in the mount tab.

I then installed the slap switch assembly and used the new aluminum mounting plate to hold the slap switch assembly in place from the back.  The two #6-32 screws pull the mounting plate and hence the slap switch assembly tight against the back of the mounting tab.
