(pull) switch lever

A pull switch is a switch that is actuated by means of a chain or string.
An electric pull switch is attached to a toggle type switch: one pull to switch on and next pull to switch off.

I understand a "pull switch lever" for emergency situations with the conveyor like this:

The Model SS-2 Pull Cord Switch is a conveyor safety accessory designed to interlock with the conveyor shut down systems in the event of maintenance or an emergency. When force is applied to the cable on either side of the switch the actuator arm rotates and locks in the alarm position. This activates two (2) micro switches and the manual lock out. Once the maintenance is done or the emergency is cleared the switch can be reset by pressing down and releasing the manual reset lever.

For the L140 cable pull switches, the lever arm is not included and needs to be ordered separately. 3 options exist in the attached
catalogue extract : KA, KO & KB

4. Thread the free-flowing end through the hole in the pull switch lever.
5. Tie a half-hitch or other appropriate knot in the free-flowing end to prevent the cord from slipping out of the hole in the pull switch lever.
