Follow these steps to make sure you are ready to experience new freedoms with your iPad
Check that the o-rings are installed correctly (see diagrams below). Make sure they are free of dust, dirt, hair and other debris.
If the o-rings are not clean, remove them and rinse in warm water, then give them a quick shake to remove excess water before immediately reinstalling
Front Section: Make sure o-ring is firmly seated in the groove and the black marks on the o-ring are positioned as indicated. Back Section: Make sure o-ring is firmly seated in the groove and the three 'T' shapes on the o-ring are positioned as indicated.
Let’s start by checking that your LifeProof® case is good-to-go by doing the water test. This test checks that all the seals and case are working properly.
1, Place clear iPad test unit into the rear case section. 2, Slide the case front on at an angle, hooking the base on first. 3, Firmly snap front and back of case together. Start at bottom and work around case to top. Once complete, inspect all edges to make sure the case is fully closed.
4, Close all the seals. Screw in the plug hole cover until snug and snap shut the charge port door. 5, Submerge under 12 inches / 30 cm of water for 30 minutes. Hold underwater or place a heavy object on case to keep it submerged. If there is a constant stream of bubbles, check for gaps in surrounding edge, or o-ring position, dry out case interior and repeat test. 6, Pull case out of water and shake most of water off, use a towel to dry thoroughly.
7, Check to ensure no water inside by looking through the transparent sections. If there is water inside, check for gaps in surrounding edge, or o-ring position, dry out case interior and repeat test. 8, Open case by first opening charge port door, then inserting a coin into gaps at bottom and twisting. Find more details below in the REMOVAL section. 9, Separate front from back case, remove test unit and check interior is dry. If there is water inside, check o-ring position, dry out case interior and repeat test.
Now you’re ready for the really exciting stuff: installing your pride and joy... and iPad.
IMPORTANT: If you have a non-LifeProof screen protector on your iPad, it is recommended you remove it before installation as it may cause leaks.
1, Place iPad into the rear case section. 2, Slide the case front on at an angle, hooking the base on first. 3, Firmly snap front and back of case together. Start at bottom and work around case to top. Once complete, inspect all edges to make sure the case is fully closed.
4, Close all the seals. Screw in the plug hole cover until snug and snap shut the charge port door. 5, Make sure all the functions work. 6, Now, you're ready for freedom.

Before You Dive In
You’re probably really excited about all the new freedoms LifeProof® now brings you, but before you engage in any activities make sure you follow these common-sense rules:
1, Follow the instructions. Study instructions showing correct installation and use. 2, Water test. Water test case prior to installing iPad. 3, Install correctly. Ensure your case is correctly installed. 4, Make sure it's all sealed. Ensure all ports and seams are closed tightly. 5, Back-up your data regularly. If you are going to engage in activities where there may be potential for damage to the device, ensure you have backed up your data. 6, Be sensible. Your LifeProof nüüd iPad case is a precision piece of equipment, it is sleek, it is tough, but it's not indestructible. Use it sensibly and with consideration.
Everyday Care Checklist
Follow this checklist to make sure your iPad is protected by your LifeProof® nüüd iPad case
1, Keep seals clean. Always ensure all seals around the charge port door and headphone cover and o-ring are free of dust, fibers and debris before closing case. 2, Rinse with fresh water after use. Rinse case thoroughly with fresh water after exposure to chemicals including soap, detergents and chlorine. 3, Regular water tests. Perform water test without iPad, using clear test unit, at regular intervals and after major impacts. 4, Check seals after major impacts. After major drops or impacts, inspect case for any damage and ensure all seams are closed, see checklist below.
After Major Impact
If a major impact occurs, follow these steps:
IMPORTANT: It is highly recommended the first time installation procedure is performed to check the integrity of the case before exposing to water.
1, Check headphone cover is still screwed in. 2, Check charge port door is fully closed. 3, Check that front and back of case has not come apart at any point and all seals are tightly closed.
1, Open case by first opening charge port door, then inserting a coin into gaps at bottom and twisting. Twisting in a circular motion with coin works best. 2, Lift the back of the case and gently work the back off using a rocking motion. Do not bend the case back and remove in a single motion. 3, Gently lift the iPad out at slight diagonal angle. This ensures the slide hooks are cleared when iPad is removed. All Done.

Your LifeProof® nüüd iPad case comes with a headphone adapter that allows you to use headphones in wet, dusty,or icy environments all while keeping your iPad safe and sound.
1, Remove plug hole cover. 2, Put plug hole cover into keeper and screw in headphone adapter. 3, Plug in your headphones.
