It is just simply pressed around the screw post and voila !! even removing it then is hard (need to use a flat screwdriver as a lever and carefully raise it to be able to take it off)
The small gap you can see between the 3D part and the tactile switch is the room for the cable and the soldering
You can also see that the piece is flush with the EXT.CONNECTOR hole where the SAIO's USB port lays... This also allows the USB port to be supported underneath so it will stay steady
You put the switch first in place, then you push the support and that's all...

The shell model is the amazing work of Neolith !!!
Thank you Neolith, your cad is almost perfect so i could save some prototype printing with it !

Unless I'm mistaken, your mode button for your build is at the top of your shell and not the side. Was this the standard placement for the mode button with the SAIO version of the kite board, or was yours a custom job? I believe the mode button on kite's CS is where you put your DC barrel? (Kite or anyone, please confirm this?).
If it was your custom mod, can you elaborate a little on what had to change vis a vis the PCB to make this happen? Was it as simple as desoldering something off kite's PCB and rerouting via wire rather? Or is it more involved?
