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 actually did remove and install it in the 3 o'clock or (accessory position) was able to depress button with finger.
What I can't understand is why this mobile HD mechanic would tell me to turn it to the accessory position, when every video (and you guys) say turn it to the fork lock pos. Either this mechanic can't tell time! Or it can actually be removed in either position but everyone just does one way.
My next tool will be getting the alignment tool!
