  10. Every time you remove your BoXZY Attachment Head you will need to tape the limit switches to protect them from accidental damage during handling
    • Every time you remove your BoXZY Attachment Head you will need to tape the limit switches to protect them from accidental damage during handling

    • We encourage you to use any brand of a Painters Tape, with a mild adhesive

    • Apply the tape to each of the four (4) limit switches individually making sure that you apply the tape from the hinged end to the opened end, as indicated by the red arrows in the first image

    • You will remove the tape in the same direction that you applied the tape, feel free to draw an arrow on the tape so you can remember which direction to pull the tape from when you remove it
