How do I set the alarm on an old-fashioned twin bell alarm clock?

On the back there should be an alarm set knob, it may be the same as the time set knob and you may have to push this in or pull it out to get to alarm mode. On the face of the clock there should be a small, short, extra "hand" that doesn't move with the time; that's the alarm setting. Holding the face towards you, turn the knob on the back until the alarm hand points to the time you want the alarm to go off, based on where the hour hand would be (remembering that the hour hand of an analog clock moves slowly between the numbers of this and the next hour, so 6:30 would be halfway between the 6 and the 7). Then there must be a way to turn on/off the alarm. Set this to on before you go to bed at night. In the morning when you wake up you will set this to off to stop the alarm. Don't turn it back on until before you go to bed, or else it will go off at the PM version of the alarm time.
