Support Clamps and O-Rings for the Original Footrest
Note: These add-on support clamps are only needed if you bought a footrest prior to March of 2021. All new footrest orders come with a set of support clamps.
Our original footrests came with black o-rings that held the footrest in place. Over time, the footrest might start to slip if spills or natural oils get on the legs. Occasionally cleaning the legs with rubbing alcohol helps keep the o-rings secure, but we know busy parents don't always have time to do a wipe down! We designed these white clamps to fasten over the black o-rings and prevent all slippage! They also give more stability for older and more active children. Support clamps are only needed for under the footrest and are not necessary above the footrest. Clamps come with two extra black o-rings.
Installation: Install the o-rings and footrest on the highchair. Wrap the clamps around the o-rings under the footrest. Make sure the o-ring is completely inside the groove within the clamp. Use two hands to close the clamp by holding the clamp together with one hand and fastening the closure with the other hand. A tight fit is necessary to securely hold the footrest in place.
Safety Warning: Please keep unused o-rings and clamps out of reach of children. The small rings are not a toy and could be a choking hazard.
Machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle setting. Avoid harsh spot-scrubbing, and use a phosphate-free detergent for longer color life. Tumble dry on a low temperature or permanent press setting.
FDA grade silicone is highly resistant to staining. In order to avoid temporary discoloration, wash immediately after use. To clean, simply rinse with warm soapy water. You can also place in the top rack of the dishwasher, just make sure it isn't too close to the heating element. If you do notice staining, continue using and washing for a few days. Typically the discoloration completely disappears on its own. Please note, fading may occur if silicone is left in direct sunlight over an extended period of time.
Pro Tip: We recommend putting the placemat back on the tray while wet then letting it air dry before the next meal. This trick gives it a little extra stick!
The bamboo footrest can be cleaned with a damp rag or soap and water as needed.
