You could just purchase some extra wire, strip the ends, and twist them together with the wires from the switch. Run the extended wires back to your power source.

The better way to do it is to connect the extended wires by soldering, but it's not necessary.

(Does this help at all?)

John's response is good for the limited information you gave, so here goes for some more info. What kind / brand of switches, what control system conventional, dcs, tmcc, etc,. The more info you give the better the answers MIGHT be! Russ
