i used the similar mechanism in the past, but used a timer-outlet from ikea with the turning timing wheel instead of clocks (see the picture). As a bonus i had a timer-controlled outlet for air pump. But it was not pocket-sized ;) It was not invented by me, it has an author in internet.

Any Suggestions on how to mount this?

You could use double sided tape
