What is the proper procedure for installing a weather proof cover to protect the GFI installed?

Please follow the instructions included with the product. The overview, however, is to turn the breaker off, loosen the GFCI from the outlet box (leave it wired, save the screws), pull it through the included gasket and back cover, position the gasket over the outlet box and screw in the four screws provided to mount the cover. Mount the device into the box using the saved mounting screws, select the appropriate device insert, mount it over the device, and fasten using the included screws. For installation on smooth, flat surfaces follow the above and make sure to use a 1/4 inch bead of RTV type silicone, neoprene, urethane, or polyurethane caulking between the gasket and mounting surface.
