Remove Old Skin and Vein
To remove the old skin from the arm, open the tie at the top end of the arm. Then, coat the exterior skin lightly with the lubricant (included) and strip off the skin so that it will be inside out when you finish. (See figure 1.)
Remove the old vein by pulling the tubing out of the channel in the core arm. (See figure 2.)
Replace the Tubing
Double the tubing to find the approximate center and place in the groove of the core arm, starting with the center of the tubing at the center of the back of the hand. Do not remove the film from the tubing. (See figure 3.)
Lubricate the Skin
Pour the remaining lubricant into the new skin, allowing lubricant to run down the sides. (See figure 4.) Squeeze the skin between extended hands. Work your hands back and forth, up and down the skin to coat the inside of the skin thoroughly. (See figure 5.)

Install the New Skin
Grasping the skin with both hands as shown, slide the skin down over the core until the core fingers are approaching the finger holes in the skin. (Caution: Work the skin on gently and evenly - pulling hard on the end of the skin can stretch or tear the material.) (See figure 6.)
As the skin is worked down over the core, be sure that the tubing remains in the channels.
Work Fingers into Place
Guide the fingers and thumb carefully into the proper holes as the skin is slipped further down on the core. If you encounter difficulty, simply slide the skin back an inch or two from the fingers and begin again. (See figure 7.)
Draw Skin Tightly Over Core
After the fingers are positioned in the hand, slide the skin over the remainder of the core to provide a snug fit. If air is trapped in the fingers, a 22-gauge needle can be used to puncture the finger tip to allow the air to escape. (See figure 8.)
Check Tubing location
Feel along the tubing channel to be certain that the tubing is properly seated. If it has slipped out of its channel, it can usually be moved back into position by working it with your fingers on the outside of the skin. (See figure 9.)
Position Ends of Tubing
The ends of the tubing should emerge from the center of the end of the core once the skin is tied. (See figure 10.)
Thread the lace tie through the eyelets. Pull the skin snugly over the core and tie the lace to hold skin in position. Check to be sure the tubing has not become kinked. Pull slightly on tubing so the vein appears more prominent. (See figure 11.)
FIGURE 11If the skin stretches slightly during use, it can be tightened by retying the lace.
Warm water can be used to rinse away any excess lubricant remaining on the surface of the skin.
