6 pos chip switch mount

I put in my TS 6 pos chip and aFe intake today.
The switch for the chip doesn't come with any kind of mount for attaching it to the dash.

I'd like to hear what has worked for some of you.

I can hold my bladder for 1200 miles. TS 6 pos chip. Baby Swamps injectors. aFe Diamondeye 3" DP. Stock size Michelin hwy tires...I like a quite ride in my loud truck.

Just drill a whole the size of the threaded part of the switch (test it by sliding the nut from the switch on the drill bit to find the right size) then it can put any where you want as long as the cord reaches. I mounted mine under my steering wheel by just drilling a whole into the plastic under it.

I'm less concerned about where to mount it then how to mount it.
I don't see how the switch comes apart. I've tried pulling on the knob but I don't think it comes off. Do I need to pull harder? Even if the knob comes off, what do I use to actually mount/attach it to where ever I put my hole in the dash.

there should be a very small allen head set screw on the knob itself, back it off and the knob slips off, then there is a nut on the threaded part. drill hole, slip through, tighten nut and replace knob and retighten set screw, done!

Got it mounted thanks.
Now I just need those injectors to come in and get that DP on.
I think I'll own it for 7 more year.
I wonder if the transmission will hold up.
