3D printing settings

The tether file is designed to be printed in NinjaFlex (or similar) on a printer with a .4mm or .6mm nozzle, although other nozzle sizes may work as well.

On a printer with a .4mm or .6mm nozzle, the file should be sliced with 1 perimeter and 100% concentric infill. A layer height between .2mm and .3mm is recommended.

Once the tether is printed, a slip knot must be created. To do this, Insert a paperclip or similar into the small end of the tether, and pull the large end through.

This file is optional, but can assist with installation. Print in ABS or PLA with a single perimeter and 20% infill.
