If the reading circuit detects the Clock's hole before Data's hole you'll have
a "0" and not a "1" as it's supposed to be.
If you make Data's hole a little bit bigger and slightly before than Clock's hole,
you ensure that the first thing the reading circuit will detect is Data.
This will be "1" and then the Clock's hole, getting a "1".
Of course the holes have to be at the same distance as the PTs distance between
Here you can take a look at my card.
The holes on the right are the Clock holes, the center of the card isn't perforated
since I've used that part for Reset.
On the left side, the big long hole is Data, I did it like that because I was
lazy and I didn't want to make hole by hole, as you can imagine Data was always
And here is the final result, the LED
