Step 1:

Locate the “Indicator Dot” on your plug. It is not very big, but should be visible on the plug. The “Indicator Dot” is used to indicate the outside and top of the right earplug. Please note that the earplug for the left ear does not have an “Indicator Dot”.

Step 2:

Gently place the earplug into the ear canal with the “Indicator Dot” at the front of the ear, or in the direction of your nose.

Step 3:

Rotate the earplug a quarter turn counter-clockwise, up and away from the nose, toward the top of the head. While rotating the earplug it should naturally move deeper into the ear canal, though applying light pressure with the thumb will make insertion easier and more complete.


Once the earplug is properly seated the “Indicator Dot” will be visible at the top of the plug as shown in the pictures.

Improperly Seated Earplugs

*Note: The portion of the earplug above the “Indicator Dot” should be tucked into the folds of the ear.
