Low Pressure Brake Switch Wiring

I could have put this in two places but decided the electrical section was best.

My question is how the Brake switch should be wired, another sanity check.

I'm using the EZ Wiring harness and it contains two wires marked "brake switch power" (it's a heavy gauge wire) and another wire marked only "brake switch" (it's a much lighter gauge).

My question is does it matter which wire goes to which lug on the switch. (there are only two lugs on the switch with no markings) or do I just test the connections for proper operation once I apply power and step on the brake???

Any suggestions would be helpful... Thanx Guys...

It does not matter which one has power as it is only a switch. If you are talking about this kind of switch. The two wires in your harness, one supplies power to the switch, the other goes to your brake lamp circuit and they feed through the switch
