This makes the system totally portable and allows you to safeguard your children where ever you go.

- always remove wristband before bathing or taking your child/pet in pool
- use only Terrapin velcro "pet adaptor" strap to attach Turtle to upper side of pet collar
- once pool coverage has been tested first time, subsequently test by immersing only half the Turtle. This tests sensitivity and makes turn off almost immediate.
