How to Properly Wear Your Stot Sports Back Support Belt in 4 Simple Steps
#1 Open the Brace
Begin by detaching the long and short straps from the back brace. Lay it flat for easier handling.
#2 Lumbar Pad Placement
Open the small Velcro straps holding the lumbar pad.
Ensure you put the lumbar pad in its rightful place with the Stot Sports logo facing right side up. This ensures that the pad is in the correct direction for optimal support.
The lumbar pad is optional. You can use the back support belt without it.
#3 Positioning the Brace
Now, place the brace against your back, aligning it with your navel.
The key to wearing the brace is not too high or too low. Here, you'll find your sweet spot for maximum support.
#4 Securing the Straps
Take the first strap and wrap it around, adjusting it to a snug yet comfortable fit. This is an essential step in using a back brace, but equally crucial is knowing "how to clean a back brace" to maintain its efficacy and longevity. Then, take the second strap (designed to stretch easily), and secure it in place.
Remember, the key is to find a balance—not too tight that it restricts movement and not too loose that it fails to provide support.
In addition, and for optimal storage, remember to store it safely in the provided mesh bag.
