Start with a clean, dry work area to ensure good adhesion.
Cut the desired length from BitTape. The average bit takes approx. 6-12", but this may vary depending on application or tip size.
Gently pre-stretch the BitTape material.
Place the starting edge on the front of the bit to avoid creating a bump against the horse's tongue.
Overlap the BitTape approx. 50% on itself as packaging.
Once wrapped, press the material firmly to ensure good adhesion.
If you see signs of wear or if BitTape begins to loosen, cut it, throw it away, and rewrap it with new material.
Tips & Tricks

Take your time! Once BitTape joins, you will no longer be able to unpack or reuse the material.
For best results, apply the minimum number of coats required (overwrapping may reduce durability).
Do not leave horses unattended with a wrapped bit in their mouth for an extended period of time.
BitTape will typically last several rides, depending on the effectiveness of application, number of layers applied, bit style, amount of chewing the horse and other factors.
