Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Waddoguy The jury is out
Based on my experience, having just purchased this device, I'm holding judgment, but just want to comment on the lack of instructions. There's not a thing on the packaging, or within, to guide a user on how to program it. Looked on the HD site, and saw that it mentioned pushing down the pins. Tried for several minutes and was afraid I might break the darned thing. Then accidentally pushed one up! That's when I realized that it comes with ALL the pins pushed down, duh! Hope this helps anyone else struggling to program it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eustrezz Thank goodness for youtube videos!
I bought it yesterday to use for my food dehydrator. Couldn't find instructions so I went online and found them in the info & guides box. Couldn't understand the instructions! So I went to youtube and found demonstrations of different products with same mechanism. If it weren't for the videos I would have taken the thing back to the store and bought a digital timer instead. So far I'm pleased with the product, only had it a day. Now my food dehydrator goes off automatically thanks to the timer.
Home Depot should make their own "how to operate" videos and embed into info & guides box if they aren't going to print better instructions.

Pull up all the pins, they come shipped in the down position. Down means "ON"....up means "OFF.
After pulling them all up,let's say you want it on from 5:00PM till 11:00P, push DOWN ALL THE PINS BETWEEN 5 AND 11------ALL THE PINS MUST BE DOWN DURING THE PERIOD YOU WANT THE LIGHTS ON.
Will see how it really works tonight but think I got it figured out doing a web search.

Thank goodness for these reviews or I would have gone nuts. How can a store like Home Depot sell stuff without instructions. I was thinking I must be an idiot until reading these SO helpful comments and boldly doing as consumer instructed ... Now let's see if it works. Are you listening , HOme Depot ... Give us weekend warriors a break.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie Does what it's supposed too
Very easy to use, I'm not sure why other people are saying it's complicated. Then again, I am a rocket scientist. Instructions are included, at least mine had them, but didn't need them. Maybe I should send them to one of the other reviewers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky Good value on a grounded timer that handles loads
Easy to use timer that can handle higher-amperage loads. Works great for my dehumidifier. It's nice that it doesn't have separate pieces (that could be lost) to mark on and off times.
