When using the Toothbat it’s all about threading your floss around the prongs of the head and twisting the head to gain tension on the floss.
To make life simple we have a video on how this is done.
- Turn the handle to line-up the head.
- Wrap the floss on 2-3 times
- Pull up the floss via the gap and lay on four arms
- Back to the twister via the gap and wrap 2-3 times
- Press the floss and turn the handle to control tension of floss
* Use the side floss of the Toothbat to clean the front inter-dental spaces and gums
* Use the front floss to clean back of mouth
The buckle has a tooth that catches on the track in the leather.
There is a lever on the side of the Buckle that when you press it will lift the tooth out of the track.
If the belt is very tight around the waist, and the pressing of the lever on the side of the Buckle isn’t releasing the tooth from the track, then push the leather further into the buckle as you are pressing the lever, then pull out to release and this will take the pressure off the track and the tooth and assist in releasing the leather from the buckle.
*If you wrap the belt around you with the buckle in your right hand lever will be present on the top.
For ease of use;
Use your right thumb to press the lever.
Use your left hand to push the leather out of the Buckle.
*If you wrap the belt around you with the buckle in your left hand the lever will be present on the underside.
Use your left index finger to press the lever.
Use your right hand to push the leather through out of the Buckle.
The Jack Belts come in long lengths with the intention that it can be cut down to size with scissors if need be.
If the buckle is not catching on the track in the leather, it needs to be cut.
If the buckle does catch but the tongue is really long it can be trimmed until it is a comfortable length. Just cut a little at a time.
If threading the leather through the buckle but it is not long enough to touch the ratchet, you need a longer leather. Our sizes range 130cm, 135cm and extra long is 155cm.
The steps when trying on the belt for the first time:
1. Before you try The Jack Belt on, just play with the release button on the side of the Buckle to see how it works. We don’t want you putting on the belt and then getting stuck inside it because you don’t know how to take it off.
2. Wrap the belt around you, thread the leather through the buckle.
If the leather catches on the ratchet that’s great. If you feel the tongue is too long then you can trim a little bit of the leather off the buckle end.
3. If the catch on the buckle goes past the track, and it isn’t catching, you need to cut the leather short enough until it does.
4. The ideal length of the leather is for the tongue to sit just past the loop on your pants with the buckle sitting in the middle of the track. This way you have room to expand or decrease your belt comfortably.

IF THE BELT IS TOO LONG
Un-clip the buckle and cut off any excess with scissors or a box cutter from the buckle end.
This will ensure that the ratchet is in the middle of your tummy
Thread the leather through the buckle and pull for the perfect tension.
Lift the leaver on the side of the buckle for instant comfort, (very handy after a large meal!).
NOTE: If you are finding it difficult to open the clasp, assist it by pushing the leather INTO the buckle as you do it, as it will help release the teeth of the buckle from the leather.
When deciding how much to cut, do a little at a time to ensure you do not cut too much off. You are aiming to have the buckle sit in the centre of the ratchet, this will then allow room for growing, smaller when you are standing or for the need to loosen the belt after eating. At the point you wish to cut the leather, Use sharp scissors or a box cutter (Stanley knife) Then return the leather back into the buckle.
