These LEDs are bi-directional and very forgiving, but if you'd like to ensure proper orientation of all your LEDs, place the LEDs such that their longer lead goes into the square holes.

When the battery is first inserted, the device will run a test pattern to ensure all LEDs are working properly. When finished, the tree will enter into one of its pre-programmed patterns.
Press the button to interrupt a pattern and turn the device off. When the device is off, you can select a pattern to display by pressing the button repeatedly.
