Decide which end you want as the hot end. Then position the bulb and holder about 8 inches in from the side and in the middle front to back. put your guard on then experiment with the probe from your thermostat to get the correct temps.

Thats how i've got mine and it seems to work ok. Just make sure you monitor the temps for the first few days while it beds in.
