New Installations:
  1. Make a cutout for the 2.125" diameter housing directly into your wall panel.

  3. Wire the dimmer to your wiring in the wall.
  4. Seat the dimmer housing into the wall cutout. Seat the dimmer guts in the housing, pushing the excess wire into the wall.
  5. Install 4 mounting screws to hold the housing to the wall, and snap the bezel into place (this hides the mounting screws).
To Retrofit into an existing switch housing:
  1. Mount the Dimmer ef1206 onto a blank wall plate that fits onto your existing switch housing.
    Note: Standard Blank Wall plates that fit standard residential style electrical switch boxes are available in various colors from hardware stores and electrical suppliers.
