I assume that you are talking about the plastic isolating fishplates. Whilst I haven't used them myself, I think you just remove the metal fishplate from the track and substitute a plastic one for it - use one to create an isolating gap or two to create a separate electrical block (as you would do at a cross-over if both circuits are under separate electrical control). Hope that helps.

As Carim says, to use these you first need to remove the metal fishplate from the rail end. Be very careful on pointwork, because it is very easy to pull the entire rail out. I know, I've done it!

I guess you can use the insulating joiners singly, but I always use them in pairs, as shown in the photo :

Hope this is helpful, all the best

Trying to attach 2 images ... Remove metal joiner. Singulate the plastic joiners ..
you can leave them connected as one user above mentioned but for more realistic appearance singulate.

Make sure that if you do singulate them note the orientation. See the photos.
