The case actually comes in two sections that snaps together. Slide the front section over the front of your KX1 phone, aligning the phone's LCD screen with the case's clear matching screen. Then slide the bottom of the case over the bottom section of the phone, and snap the two sections of the case together. Open your phone and you can dial the keypad while still in the case, speak while the phone is in the case, and view the phone's screen while in the case. Note: Case does not come with clip. Case is meant to protect phone while in your purse or briefcase.
