apparently, the manufacturer has changed the power supply to different model
with different dimensions.
This is for old model, not newer ones.

Power Supply cover, Power Switch, Power cord socket
for Anet A8, Hesine, Senhai, M505, Omni etc priters.

utilize readily available switch/socket combination part,
this black switch was cheapest on ebay, but there are red and green switch versions too.

but you can modify the mesh to fit many other switches and sockets.

designed so that can be printed without any support, and should be able to install securely with just a single M3 bolt as shown.

Line goes to fuse then to switch then to the L terminal on Power Supply.
Neutral goes to N, Ground goes to Earth.

Wider Power Switch Socket for Anet, Hesine printers supply cover
by qw623

The power supply on my ANET A8 is wider, this cover did not fit mine.

I guess they changed their power supply in newer models.

but, that's why there is skp files, so that you can modify it to fit your power supply.

Hi! nice upgrade, I'm planning to do it myself but i am not very proud of my "electric skills".
Did you use a fuse for the socket+switch (what amperage?)
Could you upload a simple connection diagram to show how should it be connected?
Thank you!

This is kind of a late response, but if you haven't found one yet there's two diagrams for different switch types on my remix's page
The wires coming from the switch and ground terminal go to the printer like normal, you can even source the wireing from the cable that came with the printer, you won't be needing it any more :D
