You can but that switch you have may also function as a stop switch. E.g. Detach the lanyard and the button goes in and kills the engine. Or push the button slightly with your thumb even with the lanyard attached and the engine stops. Most tiller mounted kill switches as work as stop buttons.

Ok thank you. I think what was originally thought was a diode is actually a male/female connector.
