The disclosure is related to a protected opening and closing mechanism for a panel or door of a casing or an enclosure, such as a cabinet, of an electric device. The disclosure generally proposes a solution in which the opening/closing mechanism, such as a quarter-turn lock, is positioned at or close to a back (inside) plate or side of a panel or a door. In addition to better enabling a required degree of sealing of the casing or enclosure to be achieved, the proposed solution may also provide additional protection for the opening/closing mechanism against exposure to ambient conditions.
