BATTERY REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
- To replace the battery, it is necessary to partially disassemble the clock. Tools required are a philips screwdriver, razor blade knife and 7/16” nut driver. The clock power switch should be in the OFF position.

- Carefully remove the end rail and place slightly to one side. Be careful of the wiring attached to the backside of the rail.

- Replace the battery clamp and the two battery clamp bolts being sure the battery is centered under the clamp and in the clock.
- Apply a small amount of silicone on the battery terminals between the terminal and the battery to hold the terminals in place. Test the clock operation by turning on the power switch. Turn off the power switch and replace the back panel and window.
