Installation Instructions for the FlipClip X™ for Scout XT™

1. Choose your preferred band configuration/orientation and line up your FlipClips™ accordingly. See instructions on each orientation below.

2. Carefully fasten the FlipClip™ to your Scout XT™ frame. Take care to ensure the screw is installed straight into the hole to avoid cross threading and keep it loose for now to leave room to insert your bands.

3. Place your band all the way into the FlipClip™ and press/pinch the FlipClip™ firmly to hold the band in place.

4. Tighten the fastener the rest of the way.

Do NOT over tighten. Hand tight is just right.

5. Carefully stretch your bands while inspecting the attachment point to ensure the bands are securely fastened. Always wear eye protection!

6. HAVE FUN!
