  • Find a friend! You only get one shot at this, so we recommend an extra hand to help.
  • Use the one finger rule. The wristband should be snug enough that no more than one finger can fit between the band and your wrist. The band can be on either your left or right wrist, whichever feels more comfortable.
  • Slide the closure towards your wrist to tighten. Hold the loose ends when sliding. The closure slides one-way and cannot be loosened.
  • Please do NOT cut the loose ends.
