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.
- OPTION #1 - INDIVIDUALLY – Unzip each individual mat’s top and bottom zipper from the other mats and lift out of the water, slightly tilting towards the drainage port.
- OPTION #2 - BI-FOLD MATS – 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 group.
- OPTION #3 - SMALL GROUPS – Very long mat groups can be Bi-Folded in separate smaller sections. Keeping the Anchor Mat secured, unzip small quantities of mats from the others starting at the end of the mats. Bi-Fold each section as stated in Option #2 and remove from the water. By leaving the anchor mat secured, the mats will not float away as they are being unzipped from each other into 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.
Mats can be laid on even if not all top/ bottom zippers are zipped closed. To keep the mats stabilized, both top/bottom zippers must be zipped closed.
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.
