-The Digispark Programming Tool is really just a kit to build a USB switch with a female USB connector on one end and a proper male connector on the other. A switch ​is placed ​on the USB 5v power connection.+The Digispark Programming Tool is a USB switch with a female USB connector on one enda proper male connector on the other, and a switch on the USB 5v power connection.
  
 Being able to switch the Digispark on and off when plugged into USB (using USB power) allows you to quickly disconnect and reconnect the Digispark when programming,​ debugging, etc without having to physically disconnect it. In addition to being quicker, this reduces ware on the connectors, and the real connectors present on the programming tool provide a solid connection between the PC and Digispark. Being able to switch the Digispark on and off when plugged into USB (using USB power) allows you to quickly disconnect and reconnect the Digispark when programming,​ debugging, etc without having to physically disconnect it.

-Lock the three 2-pin screw terminals together so they form one 6-pin screw terminal.+Insert ​the female and male USB connectors on either end of the board matching them up with the labels "​male"​ and "​female"​ on the board. You may need to bend the female connector legs (the two thick pins) out a bit to get it to fit.

-Place the 3-pin and 6-pin screw terminals through the board and attach with some tape or sticky puttyFlip the board over and solder each pin.+[[https://​s3.amazonaws.com/​digispark/​images/​m/​prog2.jpg|{{https://​s3.amazonaws.com/​digispark/​images/​t/​prog2.jpg}}]]

-Cut a length of male headers 6 pins long and one 3 pins long. Insert into corresponding positions (on the bottom of the board) and solder each pin. 
  
-[[https://​s3.amazonaws.com/​digispark/​images/​m/​wings6.JPG|{{https://​s3.amazonaws.com/​digispark/​images/​t/​wings6.JPG}}]]+Insert the resistor, flip over and solder, cut off the excess of the leads.
  
-**Tip:** Inseting ​the headers ​into a breadboard ​and then placing ​the board on top can make this process easier.+**NOTE:** If you do not want a red indicator LED when the switch is off, leave off the resistor and LED

 + 
 +Insert the red LED with the shorter lead on the same side as the resistor, flip over and solder, cut off the excess of the leads.

 + 
 +Plug into a USB port or cable, insert a Digispark (or other device), ​and flip the switch - when the LED is lit the device is off, when it is not lit the device is on!
  
-**Note:** If you are using stackable headers, use them here instead of the standard male headers.
