Attaching Pad Replacement
Figure 1 shows the product as shipped to you attached to a NEW FREE Backing Card (same as the original “Backing Card” to protect and store your shoulder rest when not attached to your instrument).
Figures 2 and 3 shows the AG shoulder rest from the side and the back with the original White attaching surface.
Figure 4 shows depicts how to peel off the “shipping paper” which allows the new pad to hold and replace the old white surface. You slightly fold the NEW replacement keeping the Backing card attached . Don’t bend the Backing Card too much only enough to peel off the paper.
Figure 5 shows the exposed High Holding Gluing surface.
Important Note: This is the surface that will Bond to the old Original attaching white surface. Never let this surface ever contact your instrument or damage to the violin Varnish can occur ! It is completely different than the other side attached to the Backing Card with the same original “Air Pockets” that gently hold AcoustaGrip products onto the instrument.
Figure 6 Carefully lay the Backing Card, with the NEW Attaching glued surface exposed, face up on a table or similar. Align the old white surface of the Shoulder Rest to match the dotted lines on the Backing Card holding the new pad.
Figure 7 Press down firmly to secure to the old white surface to the new attaching surface.
Success ! Your AcoustaGrip shoulder rest, the worlds most desired, comfortable, best shoulder rest made without Toxins in the USA has a 2nd life.
