To install: Caution: Turn off power before installation. Separate the two pieces of the outlet cover by pushing in on the tabs on either side of the product with one hand and lifting the outlet cover up and away with the other hand. Remove center screw from face plate. Do not remove face plate. While holding face plate against wall, position base of outlet cover over the face plate so that both screw holes line up and the T-bar is located at the bottom. Insert the new longer screw (supplied) through outlet cover base and face plate and tighten. Do not overtighten. To secure: Align electrical cords under the T-bar at the bottom of the outlet cover. Position the slot in the top of the cover over the tab at the top of the base. Pivot the cover down over the side tabs on the base. Be certain that the electrical cords fit through the holes in the cover before snapping the cover into place. Be certain you hear the "click" of both side tabs as they snap into position. Gently pull on cover to ensure it is secure. To open: Press release tabs with two fingers of one hand and with other hand pivot the outlet cover up and away. The release buttons on each side of the cover are initially difficult to depress. This was intentionally designed to provide extra strength and deter "little fingers" from prying it open.
