The Elgin company manufacturers a line of alarm clocks for both home and travel use.

Before starting to program an Elgin alarm clock, the device must have working batteries or be plugged into a standard electrical outlet.

Step 2

Press the "HOUR" and "MIN" buttons to adjust the clock's current time.

Step 3

Move the clock's dial to the "ALM SET" position.

Step 4

Press the "HOUR" and "MIN" buttons to enter the time you want the alarm to start.

Step 5

Move the dial to the "ALM ON" position to enable the alarm clock. If you are not ready to enable the alarm clock yet, move the dial to the "ALM OFF" position.
