Fitting Instructions for Cobra Shinguards
Put 1″ of water in the bottom of a large pot/pan and bring almost to boiling. While the water is heating up, put your Cobra sleeve on with the top of the sleeve just below the knee. The center seam should be positioned above your ankle where you want the bottom of your shinguard to be.
Place your shinguards in the hot water with the plastic side face down. Leave the shinguards in the hot water about 1 minute or until they are soft and pliable.
Using a spatula, lift your shinguards out of the water and place on a dry towel. Gently wipe off any excess water.
Immediately place the shinguard on your leg where you would like them molded. With the guard still warm and pliable, pull the lower half of the sleeve up over the guard. The guard should now be sandwiched between one layer of the sleeve underneath and another layer folded over the top. Use your hands to form the guard to the contour of your leg.
Guards will mold to the exact contour of your legs, so remain standing while the guards cool off and harden. Leave guards on for a total of 5 to 10 minutes.
Notice: We do not recommend heating Cobra Shinguards in a microwave oven due to uneven heating that can occur. Because of the patented re-moldability of this product, prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause loss of custom fit and/or damage to your Cobra Shinguards. Please do not leave in hot car, near hot stove, heating appliance, etc.
Caution: We recommend Cobra Shinguards be fitted under adult supervision. Hot water, hot pan/stove and hot shinguards can be hazardous. Do not overheat or leave in water too long.
