SUGGESTED MOUNTING METHOD:
Purchase an 8/32 Tap, the correct drill bit for the Tap and 1.5" 8/32 screws, zinc plated or stainless steel.
Next Make up a template to match the switch mounting holes and drilled the holes through the back plastic wall of box.
Next "gently" tap the holes to 8/32 thread making sure not to strip the holes. (It's plastic be slow and careful)
Next screw the switch to the inside of the box.
You can put a dab of silicon in the box screw holes to make it seal against water but i never did and none of mine leaked.
If you strip the hole in the box you can use a NUT but that is sloppy, JUST DO NOT STRIP THE HOLE when tapping and do not over tighten the screws holding the switch in then you can easily change the switch out if needed.
