Ok I give up, another ign switch question!

So I carefully removed the key switch in the fork lock position because I was starting to remove the forks to install my Patriot spring kit. Of course the forks locked when happened to move the forks hard over. I tried to reinstall the switch and had a hell of a time key was jamming up, so a little 3in 1 oil did wonders!
Anyway I called my Indy he stated that the switch should be removed in the accessory position! So I tried this and it came out and I could swing the bars hard over with out locking the forks of course.
So question is what is the correct pos to remove the switch? Seems like every video shows it in the lock position when there removing it. Thanks!

I always remove mine pointing left at the locked position but with the handlebars still pointing forward. Once removed, I then insert the alignment tool below, and leave it in while the ignition is out to ensure everything stays aligned. If you inadvertently turn the bars and lock it, the tool also allows you to unlock it…..
