I have the switchcraft 3.5mm stereo jack (part number 502-35RAPC4BH3 at mouser). Looking at the schematic on that switch I was wodnering what was the ring and what is the tip? pin position 2 and 5 are the 2 I am getting confused. Any help is appreciated.

On a typical stereo plug:

tip = left
ring = right
sleeve = ground.

On a typical stereo jack (from this thread):
attachment.php


pin 1 = ground
pin 2 = left
pin 3 = right

Sometimes, pin numbers from one jack don't match up with those of another jack. However, if you follow the pin numbers from the above image, then you'll be okay.

Another image (from this thread) just for more clarification:
