Nuke gizmo installation problem

I just can't seem to figure out how to successfully install any custom Nuke gizmos that I've downloaded.

So far, I've created a 'menu'py' file in my '.nuke' folder, and entered this line of script:
toolbar ='Nodes')
toolbar.addCommand('Keyer/KillSpillPlus', 'nuke.createNode("KillSpillPlus")','ctrl+k')

The gizmo appears under the 'keyer' menu, but when I click it, I'm greeted with the following error message:

KillSpillPlus: unknown command
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
RuntimeError: KillSpillPlus: Unknown command

Any ideas? I must doing something really basic wrong I'm guessing, I just can't for the life of me figure out what that is!

Thanks in advance.

The .gizmo is indeed called 'KillSpillPlus' and it's located in both directories.
Scratching my head over this one, I'm new to Nuke, but not to the industry.

Thanks for all the replies guys, and for the screen capture sathees, amazingly thorough of you

Quick update, I am, it seems, bonkers.
The gizmo's now show up and work fine inside Nuke.
I'd put them all inside a plugins/user/ folder within the .Nuke folder, just to keep them organized.

Good times
Thanks to everyone for their help, and apologies for my mistake!
Oh, and Merry Christmas!!
