It's a simple design. It can recess mounted into a 13 x 30mm hole, however if you did want to place in a cabinet or cupboard, there is the option of surface mounting. To surface mount you will require surface mount housing:

Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to have a look at one of our product review videos. We're putting these short little videos together to be able to allow us the opportunity to explain to you the products that we have on offer. And so therefore then, instead of just having a bit of description and a picture, you can actually see in the flesh the product, and hopefully I can explain to you how it works.
Over on our sister site, LocksOnline.com, we have a massive range of LED lighting, and I want to talk to you today about one of the door push switches that is part of the LED systems that we now have on our website. And it's this particular door push switch that I want to have a chat with you about. Now, the way that this particular push switch works is it sits in the frame of a cabinet or anything like that. That when a door comes in or a drawer, whatever it be, and pushes against that, it will switch the light off.
Now, I'm only talking about the switch here. And if you want to integrate lighting, etc. go to the lights on our site and all of the transformers etc. So I'll just explain to you how this switch actually works. So you drill yourself a hole, feed the cable through, push this into the cabinet, and then the door will come up against that and, therefore then switch the light on and off. That's the basic principle of how it works.
The diameter of the flute, I've got a vernier gauge here, is 11.5mm so you're going to be needing to drill yourself around about a 12mm hole. And that will then push into that. It's a little flute. I don't know if you can see those. I don't know if you can zoom in close enough for that. But you can see there some little flutes that you need to push in to get it to sit into place and then stay there in its location.
So without further ado, if you're thinking that you're wanting some lights, you need to get yourself a transformer, which we have one here. I also have a light fitting that I put down because obviously that light is going to be on because the switch is in the open position. So let's close that as if I'm pretending that this is a door in the place. And this is just a typical fitting that we do have to emulate how this would actually work. So when I take my finger off the switch, it switches the light on. It's as simple as that. There are no fancy workings here. It's just basically a door switch that allows you to switch the light on like that.
So there you go, guys. It's one of the products that we have on our website. Of course, we've got hundreds of different types of light fittings, and we got quite a varied amount of different switches. And, of course, this short video is just to give you the opportunity to see the product in the flesh so therefore then you can understand how it actually works. If you need a bit more information on this product or any of the products we have on our website, by all means give us a call, use the live chat, pop us over an e-mail, or give us a call at 0845-230-02-01. That's, of course, in the UK. Thanks for taking the time and we'll catch up with you real soon. Take care.
