OPEN and UNFOLD the BenchCoach by pulling on the pulling the flap, then unfold with batholders facing you. Tip: fold the closure strap underneath and attach it to the Velcro strip to keep it out of the way
LIFT the bench coach using the top hooks and hang it on the fence starting with the ENDS – not the middle. Make sure each hook is on the same row to keep it level. Tip: lean a player’s bat against the fence to determine how high to hang it.
