Peter,

My PCB is also vertical.  I need the switch to make when it goes horizontal.

Looking at the given URL, The two middle pins will be connected when the switch is horizontal as the ball will rest in its center position; between them.

Also I suggest using a cap and/or a debounce routine as this unlike a mercury switch will bounce.

It is a very nice little device :)
