Open following link to correctly identify product:

Utilitec 0148373 timer is plug-in type timer.
Set on-off times by moving pins.
Pins are located on dial and stick up. They can be moved back and forth like stick-shift on car.
See example of pins at following link:

Turn ON lamp.
Light bulb is good.
Plug lamp into timer.
Plug timer into outlet.
Move some pins outward.
Then manually rotate dial clockwise to watch how lights turn on-off.
That will tell you if lights turn on or off when pins are set outward.

To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial turns as time passes.
Lever on top of timer is moved to 'Timer'

I cannot figure out how to set my outdoor timer to control my Christmas lights. How do I set the pins?

There are 4 basic pins/tabs/segments for timers

Pins move back and forth
Segments lift up
Segments pull out
Segments push down

Each type of pins/segments are located on dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
The pins/segments contact on-off lever and cause lever to move.
Lever movement opens and closes electrical contacts.
The little plastic parts and motors wear out.

Make sure pins/segments are pushed all the way into place.
Check override switch is clicked to TIMER
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead marker
To check operation of timer, manually rotate dial to watch lights turn on-off.

Lights must be on.
Bulbs are good.
Receptacle has power.
Check timer in different receptacle.
If dial does not rotate or pins/segments don't turn lights on-off, timer might be bad.

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.
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.

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:

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

We have a timer in our switch panel and lost the instructions how to set it. It has a knob with the time on it (day and night). You can push it to turn it on. How do we set it to come on automatically?

You can see several types of timers here to identify your make and model

If timer does not rotate around on its own, then it might not be working as a timer any more, but the manual override still works as on-off button.

Usually dial timers have tiny pins that move up and down. Look closely at the dial, and then experiment by pushing all the pins one direction.

Below the dial on newer timers is a selector button. On-Auto-Off or On-Off-Timer. To operate timer, set selector to Auto or Timer.
