EASY OPENING The Lotus bracket opens easily and requires no special tools. Simply insert the end of an explorer into the circular opening located just below the archwire slot.
Rotate the explorer in a downward 45° motion, gently easing the clip open. Do not pull down on the clip as this will convert the bracket. The clip will "click" once as it disengages from the top lock and "click" a second time when fully opened.
SECURE CLOSURE Using a utility plier or tweezer place one open instrument tip on the top of the bracket and the other open tip at the bottom of the open clip.
Gently apply pressure to the plier or tweezer and the clip will begin to move up. The clip will "click" once as it disengages from the bottom lock and "click" a second time when closed.
FINISH WITH CONTROL Convertible Bracket If you wish, during the finishing phase, clips can easily be removed and ligatures can secure the archwire into the slot.
To Convert The Bracket Pull the clip down to remove, when you desire to disengage the clip and convert the bracket.
