Make sure that the connection is tight and there are no gaps.
Now, simply pinch, squeeze, press or bend the Pinchable Switch to activate your toy or device. Release the switch to its original position to deactivate the device. Some devices may continue to activate even when the switch is released. To deactivate, simply press the switch a second time to turn that device off. Check the specification of each device you are activating.
No batteries are required.
If the Pinchable Switch does not activate your toy or device, first check the connection between the plug and the jack to make sure there is no gap.
If this does not correct the problem, try a different switch to determine if the problem is in the switch or the device it is plugged into.
If you are using an adapter, try a different one to determine if the problem is with the adapter.
The Pinchable Switch can be wiped clean with any household multi-purpose cleaner and disinfectant.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will scratch the surface.
Do not submerge the unit, as it will damage the electrical components.
