Things to Know:
(1) Must perform a proper fold (see video)
(2) For the Littmann Cardiology or any large diameter stethoscope tubing, the steel tube clip will pinch the tubing slightly, but this will not damage or interfere with the function of the stethoscope.
(3) Your stethoscope is not strapped in like other stethoscope holders. It is connected by a single magnetic point. Therefore, your stethoscope will hang freely, but this is the reason it attaches/detaches so easily.
Note that your steth 'n go was hand assembled here in the USA. If the steel piece is loose then you will need a 1.5 mm Hex wrench to tighten the black screw. As for the magnet attached to the hip clip, on the back there is a black ring that keeps it in place; just hand tighten the black ring by turning clockwise.
The stethoscope was never designed to hang from the hip. Because your stethoscope is folded, you basically have a hook connected to your hip. It is perfect for it to catch onto arm chairs and bed rails in the hospital. You just have to be aware of your surroundings and protect your stethoscope when you are in these situations.
Watch our video above. If it is still not working out, then this will require trial and error to find the right fold so that your stethoscope lies flat against your body. For brand new stethoscopes this is sometimes the case where the stethoscope just does not lie flat against your leg. Your stethoscope just needs to be broken in.
So, this happens very rarely and when it does, just contact us on our contact page and we will send you a new magnet free of charge. The hip clip is made out of a strong plastic material that is both durable and flexible. However, things happen, if it does, we will replace it free of charge.
Please contact us if you have any questions or issues. We want to make sure this is the last stethoscope holder you buy.
