Help aux outboard lock

Feel a right divvy asking this but cannot figure out how to fit the (pictured) lock onto my new Yamaha 6hp aux outboard with the toggle engine mounting screws fitted. There were no instructions as it assumes you are not thick! I am heading up to the highlands and will keep the aux on the boat so need it secured.
I know it will be straightforward but I cannot see the wood for the trees on this one....must be the excessive heat!
Please help
Cheers

I've not seen one like this before but I'm guessing the "outer" bit (with the cutouts and without the keyhole) is fitted to the inboard side of the transom with the outboard securing bolts going through it and the transom. Then the "inner" bit with the key is simply fitted over it and locked into place preventing anyone from getting a spanner on the bolts/nuts.

Nope, it would appear it fits over the securing handles:

Force 4 Outboard Motor Lock - Only 29.95 - Force 4 Chandlery

Fulton Outboard Motor Lock Fulton Locks FOML0127

You fasten the motor retaining screws in such a way that the handles line up with each other (horizontally) facing in. You then place the outer bit with the cutout over the top of them with the cutouts facing the stern (with the thread of the motor clamp going out through the cutout). The inner bit (with the key lock) then comes up from underneath and locks into place preventing anyone from turning the handles to release your motor.

Clear as mud?

I believe the clamp screws that tighten that up to your transom, go inside the lock case,
so no one can untighten them.
You have to line both clamps up in the right direction.

Edit - ah - as Ovey says above !

Guys thanks for all your help
The problem was I thought (not hard enough) that the key side would face out towards the front of the boat but it is facing up to catch the salt water (or down to be a PITA to unlock)
thanks again from a so called intelligent engineer who is obviously an idiot.

Make sure you keep the lock barrel and the inside catches greased. I had the non stainless one and the lock seized after 8 months of not a lot of use and most of its time in a dry barn. It did not survive removal. If I re-fit my aux, I'll be looking for a more robust solution.
