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 kit installation by following the instructions.
2) Install the appropriate 2-pole, QO back-fed main breaker and DO NOT exceed the maximum amperage as marked on the load center wiring diagram.
3) Insert the service barrier tabs into the back-fed main breaker slots as shown in FIGURE 1 of the instructions.

4) Insert the mounting screw through the service barrier and into the load center base. Torque the screw to 25 lb-In(2.8 N-m). SEE FIGURE 1 of the instructions.
