OPTIONS TO REMOVE STACK MATS FROM THE WATER
BEFORE PLACING MATS INTO THE WATER – Lay the mats on a solid surface such as the lawn. Zip every other top/bottom zipper so the mats are already bi-folded in advanced.
- UNZIP MATS INDIVIDUALLY – Individuals removing mats by them self or unable to pick up the entire
mat group at one time have the option to unzip each individual mat’s top and bottom zipper from the
other mats and lift each mat out of the water individually, slightly tilting towards the drainage port.
- BI-FOLD MATS AS ONE GROUP – While in the water or as the mats are being pulled from the water:
Start at the Anchor Mat, unzip the top zipper, go to the next mat, unzip the bottom zipper facing the
water, next mat unzip the top zipper and so forth. Bi-Fold the mats tilting slightly towards the drainage
port and remove from the water as one folded group.
- SMALL GROUPS OF BI-FOLDED MATS – Individuals removing mats by them self or unable to pick up the entire mat group at one time have the option to Bi-Fold the mats in small sections of 2,3 or 4 quantities. While in the water with the anchor mat still secured, choose how many mats to unzip at the end of the mats. Unzip the top and bottom zipper of the first mat to be separated from the others. Move that section of mats away and unzip the next mat’s top zipper, unzip the next mat’s bottom zipper facing the water, etc. Bi-Fold the mat section and lift out of the water. Do the same with the other mat sections. By leaving the anchor mat secured, the mats will not float away as they are being unzipped from each other in small groups.
***DO NOT SWIM UNDERNEATH THE MATS TO ZIP OR UNZIP THE BOTTOM ZIPPERS FACING THE WATER! ***
Reach under the mat to zip or unzip the bottom zipper halfway or arm’s length. Swim around to the other side of the mat or have a partner at the other side pull the zipper the rest of the way open or closed. This can also be done by pulling the mats out of the water onto a dock or swim platform and unzipping them as they are pulled from the water.
LOCKING ZIPPER HEAD
The Zipper Pull will click and lock into place when it is Flat, facing the rear of the zipper head. Zipper is unlocked if the zipper pull is vertical or laying towards the front of the zipper head.
|Zipper Locked||Zipper Unlocked||Zipper Unlocked|
Mats can be laid on even if not all top and bottom zippers are zipped closed. To keep the mats stabilized,
both the top and bottom zippers must be zipped closed.
