Pickups, magnets, microphones, amps, speakers, cabs, whatever...

I’m building a bass with an active EMG P-J pickup set. Just noticed that the jack that comes with the pickup set is a stereo jack. Is a stereo plug required for this jack, or does this use a stereo jack simply to provide a way of taking the battery out of the circuit when the plug is removed (a conventional plug “shorts” the shaft and ring terminals)?
Yes, the jack just connects the neg terminal of the battery to ground (turns on the circuit by shorting ring to sleeve) when a normal 1/4" guitar plug is inserted.
Maybe I can't fix it, but I can fix it so no one can fix it
