Lapel Mics - How to Plug-in
We are seeing issues of lapel mics being plugged into the instructor station incorrectly, breaking the hardware in the belt-packs in the instructor stations. These are very expensive to replace, so we ask instructors to use extra care in plugging them in and removing them.
- For proper installation, the release button must be facing to the front of the belt pack.
- Push the cable straight down and in. Do not push the cable in and turn it. Turning the cord can result in the pins bending - ruining the mics.
Below is what the setup should look like. Notice the release button is facing forward.
