Generally, you need to find a freeze plug that is easy to get to, remove/destroy the freeze plug and install the block heater. Before you try to do all of that, make sure you have the right size freeze plug and everything that you need to install it. Generally, there is a bolt that tightens the freeze plug into the block. If you follow the included directions, it's reasonably straight-forward. If that sounds a little too involved, try an in-line coolant heater that connects to either a radiator hose or a heater hose, depending on what you get.
It's a BLOCK heater, not a radiator heater. It goes in the engine block, most of the time it goes where a freeze out plug is. You have to remove freeze plug to install it.

There are several types but generally the best are either the in-line heater hose style or the freeze plug style. If you use the in-line heater hose style, just cut the heater hose, put the block heater in place then make sure the heater control is left on at night. If you use the freeze plug style you'll need to remove an existing freeze plug and put the block heater in it's place. The magnetic style block heaters are not recommended. They seem like a good idea but they're more trouble than they're worth.
