WEATHERPROOF RECEPTACLE COVER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

This device must be mounted in accordance with all local and National Electrical Code requirements. The following illustrations are typical mounting configurations which may or may not meet your local requirements.

This weatherproof receptacle cover can be used outdoors or indoors where high humidity or water sprays may exist. The cover is molded of clear ultraviolet stabilized polycarbonate material for easy verification that cords are properly plugged in. This product is U.L. listed for outdoor or indoor applications such as greenhouses, manu-facturingplants, milking parlors, poultry houses and other such applications. This weatherproof receptacle cover should be installed on a smooth flatnon-poroussurface such as flat enameled siding, flat aluminum siding or equivalent with no joints, cracks, gaps, ribs, protrusions or other irregularities under them.

To assure a weatherproof seal between the cover and surfaces which are irregular such as brick or cedar siding, a l/4" minimum bead of nonhardening caulking compound of silicone (preferred), neoprene, urethane or polyurethane type should be placed between the weatherproof receptacle gasket and the mounting surface. (See fig. 3).

CAUTION: DISCONNECT POWER TO THE RECEPTACLE AT THE CIRCUIT BREAKER PANEL BEFORE INSTALLING THIS RECEPTACLE COVER.

To install your receptacle cover, follow the steps listed. (See figures 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8).

IF USING A POWER SCREWDRIVER, BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS BECAUSE YOU WILL STRIP THE THREADS IN THE JUNCTION BOX AND/OR THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE.

1.If installation is being done on an existing receptacle, remove the existing receptacle cover and discard.

2.The mounting screws which hold the receptacle or GFI to the junction box can be removed. Do not remove receptacle wiring connections.

3.Select the proper insert and press insert into base/cover assembly. Press insert firmly into this assembly and it will remain there during the remaining assembly steps.

4.Locate gasket as required for the installation. Be sure gasket is held to the back of the base/cover and insert assembly using the four projections molded on the insert to locate the gasket.

5.Mount the cover/base and insert assembly, hinge on top, and the existing receptacle to the junction box using two of the long screws provided (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN).

6.If mounting to an outdoor junction box or field service (FS) box, use the remaining long screws, two or four screws as required, to further secure the cover/base and insert assembly to the box. Note that holes are located in the insert for mounting to an FS box or any standard single gang junction box. For specially designed junction boxes, holes should be carefully drilled to line up with the holes in the junction box to accommodate mounting.

7.Be sure all screws are secure but not over tightened. Then install the remaining one or two short screws into the receptacle as required.

8.A molded tab (see Figure 8) is provided to allow for padlocking the cover closed if desired (Figure 9).

FOR BEST PROTECTION FROM RAIN OR HUMIDITY, BE SURE TO ROUTE THE CORDS THROUGH THE CORD OUTLETS IN THE COVER AND PRESS THE COVER FIRMLY UNTIL IT SNAPS CLOSED.
