Where did you get it, and what are you proposing to use it for?

What do you mean by a "Dimmer transformer?"
It is not for a neon.
It is only 12v - 24v input and output.
It does appear to be meant to be mounted inside a housing.

I’m using it to dim a neon sign no case was supplied and I don’t like how the wires are exposed - should I not use it just to be safe

In the main neons are AC, and a neon sign can be a very high voltage, the device you show is DC looks like a step up inverter 12 to 24 volt and does not seem to have any control, so can't see how it would ever control a neon sign, so it seems you likely have described it wrong or have wrong device.

Hi I’ve put up a new photo
The remote symbolises the neon sign
The sign company said it’s safe and it needs to be visible so the sign works
