Instructions and Best Practices
Welcome to the DROP NOT Golf Family!
May you never lose a head cover ever again!
To attach your Drop Not device to your head cover, open the black clasp. Place your forefinger and thumb of one hand on the top portion of the clasp. Do the same with your thumb and forefinger from your other hand on the lower portion of the clasp. Now it should be easy to pull the clasp apart, exposing the white plastic teeth. Carefully place the material of the head cover into the clasp opening and pull it to the very back of the clasp and snap it closed.
Make sure the head cover material is securely locked into the rear end of the teeth. If the material is too thin to be locked into place you may need to fold the material over, so that the plastic teeth can securely lock and grab onto the material. If the material is too thick, press down and squeeze the club head material between the upper and lower clamp's teeth or jaws. In both cases, you should hear or feel a "snap". Double check it is on securely.
Now, let's securely anchor or attach the Drop Not device. There are two ways to securely anchor the Drop Not device.
One can easily attach the Drop Not device to the golf bag by using the provided five-inch cable with the barrel lock. Place your clubs with the head cover in your favorite location in your golf bag. Most golf bags have six or eight dividers for club separations, some even have 14 individual dividers, one for each club. For instance, in my golf bag, my Driver and Three wood are placed at the top section of my bag and my Putter is stored at the bottom section of my golf bag.
Once you know where the clubs will be stored in your golf bag look for a place to attach the cable. A handle, a towel ring, an umbrella cord, or a circle hook are ideal. Open the barrel lock by turning the clasp clockwise until the two ends of the cable separate.
Connect the cable around one of the existing spots near the club location and attach the two ends of the cable into one by turning the barrel lock counterclockwise. Make sure the cable ends have been inserted straight and all the way into the barrel lock. At this point, your Drop Not device is now securely attached or anchored to your golf bag!
When there is no place to anchor the Drop Not device, we have two options. The first option is to attach the two Drop Not devices together using only one cable for two devices. The second option is to use the black split key ring enclosed. Simply remove both cables from the two Drop Not devices and connect both devices to the one enclosed key ring. With both options, we suggest that rather than discarding unneeded cables, save them for possible future use.
When one club with a Drop Not is removed, the other device that is attached to another head cover will act as an anchor. We recommend that you don't connect more than three devices together as the cords may tangle.
We suggest that you first try attaching the Drop Not devices to the driver and putter head covers. In most cases, these are two of your most expensive clubs. The head covers will protect the grooves and your club in general. As the saying goes, once you damage a putter or driver's front face it will never play with the same precision and accuracy as the originally manufactured club.
Once you complete the simple attachment feel free to test out your Drop Not device. Whether you have your club in or out of your golf bag, remove the head cover from the golf club and let the head cover fall. Watch the released head cover retract and hang safely and securely on the side of your golf bag.
The more Drop Not devices you have on your clubs with head covers, the more you will reduce BANGS, DENTS, AND SCRATCHES on your clubs. You will be protecting your investment in your golf clubs and your favorite head covers! Again, protect your clubs by using head covers every time you play. Get into a habit of removing the head cover off the club you plan to use and reattaching the head cover to the club after your swing.
We recommend that before each round you check that both the clasp and the cable lock of each Drop Not are securely locked as they may loosen over time.
As you feel more comfortable with the Drop Not devices and you have no tangle issues, you can potentially add one Drop Not device for every club that has a head cover. We recommend that after each use of the Drop Not you re-cover the golf club. This habit of immediately re-covering the golf club will reduce tangling issues and protect the face of your club.
In my personal bag, I have a driver and three wood that both have Drop Not devices and are attached utilizing the black key ring for two devices. I also have two hybrids that have Drop Not devices and are attached together by the black key ring. Finally, I also have a putter head cover that has a Drop Not device and it is anchored to my golf bag by the five-inch cable around the grip of the bag itself.
As you become more comfortable with multiple Drop Not devices and their retractable cords, try and place the release head cover near where the club was retracted from. You don't want to wrap the cord around other clubs or invite tangling by having two or three Drop Not cords, hanging closely together off the side of your bag.
