Switches – How to Best Attach a Wire to a Switch Without Soldering?


I've got a switch like this one:

Now my (quite novice) question is: How do I best attach a wire to the connector without soldering, e.g. for quickly trying something out?

Right now I've folded the wire so that I got a hook at its end, put that hook into the hole, and wrapped everything with electrical tape.

Is there a better way?

(I can't use alligator clamps as the two connectors are too close to each other.)

Quick disconnect terminals. They are good for permanent attachment too. The blades under the switch were intended for this type of terminal, so they should have a correct width and thickness.
