BEFORE USING THE STACK MAT IN THE WATER – Zip the panels in the Bi-Fold Position on dry land first either standing on end or lying flat on the ground. This allows familiarization of the mats before usage.
Place the mats in the water - You can float on the mats if the top & bottom zippers are not both zipped, this will allow the mats to flex.

BI-FOLDING MATS – Unzip the top and bottom zipper of Every, Other Panel (unzip top zipper, next panel- unzip bottom zipper, next panel- unzip top zipper) Mats will bifold.
Fastest Method – 2 people: 1 at each side unzips zipper midway on the mat, the person at the other side pulls the zipper completely to unzip. 1 person can unzip mats midway at one side, then move the other side and finish unzipping. Mats will now Bi-Fold. Optional – An Individual can lay on top of the mats to unzip the top side of the mats. Do Not swim under the mats.
One person can achieve this with a safety vest on and unzip the zippers ½ way on one side, then swim around the mats to the other side and finish unzipping. Do Not swim under the mats.
