    Hat Switch wiring info

    As I am buying a YoKo Yoke, which doesn't have a hat switch, I have acquired a small hand held gaming device which has a hat switch. I have removed the hat switch, but have no idea how to wire it, for use with a Leo Bodnar card. It has 2 micro switches with 3 pins each. Three pins are longer than the other three. I have no idea which is the ground pin, as there are no markings on the hat switch, and non on the PCB from which it was removed. Have tried checking out wiring diagrams on the net, but can't find anything that is similar to mine.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    Typically the middle pin will be NO, the pin closest to the plunger is COM and the pin furthest from the plunger is NC
