Chosen Solution

The Flex vibrate/silent switch with the two black plastic prongs has adhesive that initially helps to hold it to the large metal piece of the switch. Then you need to use a soldering iron to flatten down (melt) the tops of the two black plastic prongs to solidly hold the Flex switch to the metal piece. At least this is the way I do it, and seems to be the way Apple does it.
