Goggle Fins Fitting & Care
Before you begin attaching the fins, make sure you size and adjust the goggles to your face FIRST! Do NOT over tighten your goggles, but make sure the seal around your eyes is secure. A good suction over the eye is more important than tight straps, and the goggles will suction more once you begin diving.
Once this is completed, open the snap attached to the elastic, and set the fin over its corresponding lens. Then, loop the elastic over the nosepiece, and close the snaps. Fit the elastic over your lens snugly, and gently position the fin where you would like it in regard to your goggles.
The next step is tricky and varies between every individual pair of goggles.
Place your thumb on the backplate of the metal clasp to easily open and close. Once open, set one of the straps into the clasp. Make sure the metal clasp closes all the way, to make sure it is secured.
The strap closest to the head is normally best. Depending on your goggle straps thickness, material, and placement, this will change. If your straps are thin, you can place both in the clip. As long as the clip CLOSES FLAT, ALL THE WAY, they will hold.
Give your goggles a good shake to check if they are attached. If they are on correctly, they will not fall off.
After you are done swimming, do not leave the fins on your goggles, as this created unnecessary wear and tear.
Use the backplate to open the metal clasp, and unsnap the loop to easily remove.
Then, rinse with fresh water. Both chlorine & salt water are extremely damaging to these product, so try not to skip this step.
Unfortunately, our metal clasps are prone to rusting, so here are a few tips to deal with that!
We’ve found that by placing something under the clasp, such as a Q-tip, you can prevent excess rusting, and staining to the fabric. But this step is completely optional. After rinsing, you can squeeze your fins in a towel to remove most of the water. Your fins will dry fairly quickly, even with air drying. But if they are still wet when you put them away, be sure to put the metal clasps pointing outward to prevent any staining. Use the netted bag provided to keep your fins safe & secure!
Silicone GogGills Fitting & Care
Before trying your new GogGills on, loosen the straps all the way. Loosen the straps by lifting up the tab underneath the fin.
Place one strap near the crown of the head, and one lower. Tighten each side a small amount at a time. Take turns between either strap so once they are fitted, they are tightened evenly on both sides.
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN YOUR STRAPS! This will stretch out the nosepiece of your GogGills, and can ruin them. A good suction is more important than tight straps. Your GogGills will tighten up even more once you start swimming, due to the pressure increase as you dive down.
After you are done swimming, place your GogGills in the case provided. Follow the rule: "If they aren't on your face, then they're in the case!"
Rinse your GogGills with freshwater, and allow to dry before closing the case fully.
If you lose or break a part of your case, please let us know & we'll send you a replacement at no charge!
