SOURCE: Where are the "never-lose pins"

Woods 59204 manual says pins, and I think the timer has tabs or segments instead.
These are located on the rotating part of dial.
Look at pictures on following link to see 4 basic pin-tab-segment layouts that are used to turn these timers on and off: It's likely that your timer will be one of these.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs
Some timers have pins that click in and out
Some have segments that pull up
Some have segments that pull out
Some have segments that push down
Add a comment any time.

The phrase 'never-lose' means the pin-tab-segment is permanently attached to the timer dial.
Older timers, and many box timers have loose pins or trippers that you attach to the timer dial ... and of course people lose these trippers and are constantly searching for their model number of tripper which is not available. And some of these older timers were expensive. For example the older style malibu power packs have trippers, but when the tripper wears out, there are no replacements and power packs are expensive.

SOURCE: Where are the pins on

The "pins" are the 48 little tabs that are around the clock dial. That would be 2 in every hour of the 24 hour day.
Push down a pin to start the device that you want to control and pull up the pin at the time you want the device to stop.

Model 59382, where are the segment pin`s located?


http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59383

Photo of timer shows segments are located along outer edge of dial.

I'm not sure if these segments pull in-and-out or if they lift up.
Usually when segments lift up, they don't come straight up.
They lift up-and-outward or they lift up-and-inward.
Put a nail file under one of the segments and see if it moves upward.

You can also take advantage of fixya phone support.

How many minutes does each pin represent?


You posted under Woods 59383 outdoor timer with 500 watt capacity.
This is a 7-day timer with segments (or pins) located around outer edge of dial.
Pull segments up to set OFF times.
Leave segments down for ON times.
Image of timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Woods-59383-image-500.jpg

Looking closely at image, there are 12 segments for each day.
So each on-off segment is 2 hours.
The dial shows days of week.
For example Monday (MON).
MON appears at 12 noon Monday.
TUE appears at 12 noon Tuesday
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead.

If this is not your timer, see all Woods timers and manuals:

Where are the pins on the 59382 outdoor timer


The 'segment pins' mentioned in manual are tiny segments located around outer edge of dial.
There are 4 segments per each hour.
Each segment represents 15 minutes.

Use small screwdriver or fingernail to pull segment up.
When segment is up, timer is OFF
Leave segment down, timer is ON

Timer is 500 Watt.
Timer handles maximum 20 strings of 50 mini-bulb Christmas lights

I can't find the pins that the instructions refer to.


Woods timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

1) You posted question under Woods 59383 which has segments located around edge of dial.
These segments are pulled up to set OFF times.
Segments are left in down position for ON times.

2) Other Woods timers have tiny pins that stick up on the dial.
Pins are located on part of dial that rotates.
Get your glasses.
Run your finger across the dial and you can feel tiny metal pins that stick up.
Dial has 48 pins. Each represents 1/2 hour.
Use fingernail to move pins outward from center of dial.
Pins out = timer ON
Pins inward = timer OFF

Below are 2 EXAMPLES of Woods timer showing pins and segments
