Installing the Pointy box

Connect the Pointy box in three easy steps

It's very simple to connect Pointy. You should find step-by-step instructions in the pack we sent you.

The steps vary slightly depending on your barcode scanner, so please refer to the instructions included for your particular model of barcode scanner. For USB scanners, the basic steps are:

  • Disconnect your barcode scanner from your POS (note the USB port you removed it from).
  • Plug the large end of the USB lead we provided into this port, and plug the small end into the Pointy box.
  • Now plug your barcode scanner into the Pointy box.
