Question wiring a safety paddle switch

I have a large paddle on off safety switch I would like to install in my new router table. Its made by General International and can be wired for different phases and voltages. There are two columns of screws to attach wires to and there are three rows of screws in that two column format (two screws at the top row, two in the middle row and two in the bottom row). Can anyone help me with a wiring diagram for a single phase 120 hookup? What do I do with the ground wire?
Thanks

It most likely isn't made by Grizzly, just sold by them. Is it by chance a Kedu HY56? This is a switch with the big paddle stop sold by many companies. I just bought one today from Busy Bee here to install on my router table when I get it built. All you have to do is attach the hot (black) feed wire to one side terminal (any one), and the line out black to the plug for the router on the opposite side. Any set of terminals will work. If it was 220V, you would switch both hot wires, and if 3 phase all three hot wires.

The neutral (white) wire can get spiced with a wire nut in the box. The ground should be spliced in the box, and grounded to the box as well.

Thank you for the information on wiring the switch. I searched the internet for Kedu HY56 and found pictures, but no diagrams. I was about to send a request for information to Grizzly when I decided to search for "kedu hy56 wiring diagram" and found your post. Exactly the information I needed, thank you!
