  • Mark the placement position on the surface and connect all tools and pieces according to instructions. Join the female side of guard dog cord covers on top of the male side. After joining, press both sides down until they fit into the connecting ends.

Essentials to Remember

  • Ask our representative about purchasing the connector ends with your chosen guard dog cable covers. When closing the lid, the cables should always be secured with connectors ends.
