The Electronic Outdoor Timer is housed in a black plastic case with a round plastic selector dial located on the front of the housing. The item measures approximately 5 inches in height, 3 inches in length and 1 1/2 inches in width. The timer is grounded for use with 3-wire plugs and outlets. The instruction sheet included with the timer directs the user to plug the timer into a grounded outlet. As explained on the instruction sheet, the user must rotate the selector dial to choose the desired function.
