Just connect input cable to input holes, it doesn't matter which cable on which hole.
Wall socket is connected to another two holes.
If you used cable with 3 wires, the yellow-green wire from cable connect directly to socket.

I made box from plywood squares which I glued together, drilled holes and mounted socket and controller.

Now just connect regulator into electricity and drill (or another tool or light) into this box. And, you can easily control it :)
