Taltz abbreviated steps to inject
Make sure the device is in the lock position.
Twist off the base cap in the direction of the arrows.
Place the base of the device flat and firmly against injection site.
Turn the lock ring to the unlock position.
Press the green injection button.
You will hear a loud click, which means the injection has started.
Listen for a second click about 10 seconds later. The second click means the injection is complete.
