  • Caution: the back pad is secured with glue so remove it gently to avoid ripping the pad. You may have to repeatedly pull and release to loosen up the glue.

  • First start by peeling off the outer rubbery covering on the bottom of the device. This part is very fragile, so it is recommended that a blow dryer is used on the covering to heat it up. Simply blow dry the covering while slowly peeling it away, and the covering will not tear.

  • Continue peeling back on the pad until it is removed.
