Many projects require Anderson plugs to power circuits in jiffy boxes. Here is a way to do it.
The Anderson plugs have a flat side and a side with the hooks sticking out. I faced the flat side onto the lid. This will require that you either remove the lip on the edge of the lid, or create a groove on the Anderson plug to accept the lip. I elected to create a groove on the Anderson plus, keeping the lip on the lid for rigidity.
A hole is drilled to hold the Anderson plug against the lid with a screw. If this is a permanent installation, you may want to use some glue.
The Jiffy box sides have been cut to accommodate the 2 plugs. The cut is narrower than the plug and grabs the plug where it narrows for the pusher lock.
Another groove has be created to match the bottom of the cut when closing the lid. Note that this groove is aligned with the plug’s side grooves. The groove that matches the lid edge is in recess as the lid edge is behind the box wall.
