Ignition switch removal and install question

I am just double checking myself as I have not actually removed a switch yet and getting ready to install a new black switch. For those who have removed the ignition switch and installed the switch on the newer road glides. I have watched the YouTube videos on the newer street glides, I'm assuming the road glides are the same thing. Handlebars all the way to the left, ignition to the locked position and push the tab underneath move the Key slightly more counterclockwise and the switch kinds of pops up.

Ensure the key is in the new switch is fully to the counterclockwise position after the key is inserted and the tab pushed up. Insert switch, turn key slightly clockwise, a click is heard, turn the switch clockwise to off position. All should be good, have I missed anything, better ask than be sorry?

Sounds right to me. I just did it when I put my new bars on and I've put it in and taken it out numerous times without issue.
I even messed up the tumblers but info from this forum got me straightened out.
Don't over think it. You got this.
