A PDF copy of the complete instructions is attached below the video.

Make sure to turn OFF ALL Power supplying the equipment and verify the power is OFF using a properly rated voltage sensing device, BEFORE working on or with electrical equipment. 
1) Once all Safety steps are followed, begin the hold-down screw installation by following the instructions.
2) Make sure to obtain the correct 2-pole, 150-200amp, Homeline branch breaker to be used as the back-fed Main and DO NOT exceed the maximum rating marked on each load center.
3) As shown in step 3, on page 2 of the intructions, install the steel hold-down screw throught the hole in the circuit breaker and tighten so that the screw contacts the back inside of the enclosure (see Figure 1 for location) 
4) Verify that there are no conductors/wires trapped between the screw and the back of the enclosure.
NOTE: The screw DOES NOT thread into the box, it only prevents the circuit breaker from rotating to the "removal" position.
