I have the same router. Which is how i know that all of the incurrent airflow is through the top which you have blocked with your lift block.
How have you overcome the very frustrating power switch (which needs to be constantly held like an engaged trigger)?

The airflow isnt interrupted, the lift block has some dowels that go into the screws on the top, so I have like 1cm spacing. I know it looks that the block is touching the router in the video, but is not. Thank you for your concern :)

The power switch is pressed with a plastic strap

Aah, great. The spacers at the screw positions is what came to my mind when i thought about how i would do it.
