Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mike If you do the following you will be happy with this timer.
1. Take a Sharpee and write on the side of the timer DOWN=ON, UP=OFF. 2. pull all the pins UP before programming.. 3. If you have big fingers use something small, like a pen or small screwdriver to press the pins down for the times you want the power ON. Set the current time on the wheel against the arrow. Be careful not to accidently change it while handling or get the am/pm wrong (my favorite way of messing up). Don't buy this timer if you might ever need to plug in a 3 pin plug. No ground pin hole in this timer, In my opinion a serious defect, why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. I recommend paying a couple extra bucks and getting a timer with the 3 pin plug and outlet.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DIYers Not to be used behind furniture.
It works fine as long as it is not plugged into an outlet behind a sofa or any furniture that could slide up against it. With this style of timer, you pull up all the little tabs on the face of the dial and then push down the ones that represent the time when you want the timer on; however, if it's is behind a sofa or a piece of furniture that ends up sliding up against against the timer, the buttons get pushed down and negates the purpose of the timer. If you use it anywhere else, where nothing can touch it, it works fine (so far).

The product was simple and did what it was meant to do. I had bought them for our Christmas lights and for a couple of lamps around the house for security (also so that it wouldn't be so dark in the house when we get home from work!)...

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NYScot Good product, good price - not much to go wrong
Be aware that all the pins are DOWN when you open the packaging. So push the pins up (from the edge) to program , don't spend minutes trying to push in pins that are already down !

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JKJH great value
For those who had trouble pushing the tabs down, first pull them up (as stated in the instruction)...then push down the tabs you want. There should be no resistance at all
