Swap parents with Contraint tag help

I'm trying to have an object switch parents. I'm using the Contraint tag on my object (a null). I have two targets in the Parent tab — one cube in each.

But when I switch the weight of each target, the Null changes position.

How can I swap parents without the object shifting?

Don't use two different targets fields, just animate the object switch in one target field.

Very clever! So you just animate what the target is, not the weight. Thanks!
