If that power nozzle is running 240V, then its very dangerous what you are doing, that dyson switch on the handle has live terminals exposed and could cause you an electric shock if you touched them. Be very careful when playing with electricity!
I know its tempting to modify vacs, but be safe when doing so.

What Steve is saying is that if you touched the terminals by accident you could give yourself an electric shock which is not fun.
