Google Fodder: I have one of these and couldn't work out how to set it, having lost the instructions. I found them here, but also include them here on my blog, in full (copy / paste), in case that link goes dead (Update: and it has, it seems)....as they do tend to do over time.
The delay function can only be activated when the Timer is in Clock mode and only when the Timer is plugged into an outlet.
