Some help understanding these wiring diagrams.

Could someone help me decipher these, do the wires go "into" the top or the bottom?

I just need to know how to connect the current to the gfci, the gfci to the breaker and then I suppose by process of elimination I can figure out where the protected circuits come out.

Pretty hard to find an answer as all the places that sell those breakers are in Spanish.

I spent 15 minutes searching their site and translating to English. They don't seem to specify line or load.

Sorry I didnít mean to make you look so long, I thought maybe the little drawings on the breakers would help.

are circuit breakers even directional? I remember that with old fashioned fuses it didn't matter which side was which.

Breakers themselves are usually non-directional. However, GFCI and AFCI breaker and some breakers with sepecial functions may be directional.

Breakers with screw terminals are usually wired with input on top and load on bottom terminals.

Based on one diagram I found..... that is correct. Line in on top. Load on bottom.

Based on the GFCI breaker diagram I would also agree that line is on top and load on the bottom.

The breaker on the left appears to be a standard breaker and should be able to be wired either way.
