The sundial is actually folded up. You will need to open up the latitude arm (has numbers 10 to 50 on it), and move the arm of the sundial until it is 90 degrees to the sundial. It may need to be adjusted for daylight savings time, so it ultimately be at an 80 degree or 100 degree angle. The compass will need to point north, but first it needs to be "unlocked" via the sliding knob located below hour 4 through 7. Next, find your latitude for your city. For example, St. Louis, MO, is at 38 degrees. The sundial will need to line up with the latitude on the latitude arm. Next, make sure the screw legs are all the same length, then place on a level surface under the sun. It may take a bit for the compass to line up with north, and this is pretty important for getting accurate time. Then, read the time on the shadow. If I'm wrong about anything I've described I apologize! Feel free to do your own research, though, and don't take what I say as gospel.
I'm not a sundial expert, and it still would have been nice to have instructions, but it's still a fun piece.
Oh, and I purchased this via Prime, it took a week to arrive.
