When using our EPDM rubber binding strap, we recommend that you first glue and tape your binding in place. Our FT75
binding tape is great for this and we sell several kinds of glue depending on the type of binding being installed. To use our binding tape, affix it to the side of the instrument and then pull up and over the binding pulling it in tight, and making sure it is seated well in the binding ledge. The tape should not overlap, as this will prevent you from seeing any gaps between the binding and the ledge. Once the binding is completely taped on, follow up with our binding rubber. Clamping pressure can be easily adjusted as the rubber is very stretchy. An inch or so of space can be left between every wrap of the rubber unless you find a difficult spot that needs a bit more coercion. For particularly difficult spots like the waist, extra clamps can be applied if necessary.Note:
To prolong the life of our binding rubber, you can very slightly round the outer edge of your binding so it won't create tears in the rubber.
