I have this emergency switch that I need to mount on a control cabinet. I googled but cannot find any tutorial or picture on how this switch supposed to be mounted.

Am I supposed to mount the whole thing outside the enclosure? But then the whole switch (B) will protrude too much and looks ugly aesthetically. Am I suppose to detach A from the switch where A is outside of the enclosure and the rest hide inside the enclosure? But it requires me to disassemble the internal switch plastic parts to do that.

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's unclear what "the enclosure" means. The shown switch can be mounted to a brick wall or steel girder; anywhere that is convenient in an emergency is the right location. \$\endgroup\$

That switch looks like it's meant to be attached to a wiring conduit. It isn't designed for the application you have in mind.

What you're looking for is a "panel mount" emergency stop switch. Search for a part using these keywords and you'll find something more appropriate.
