When I popped my Pod up for the first time my wires seem twisted. Is there a way to fix this?
It is normal for the Pod to be a little stiff and the wires slightly bent from being packaged, stored and shipped. We recommend you open your Pod upon receipt, lay it flat, and make sure the wires lay flat. It is all right to step on them firmly to flatten them and, once popped up, do another quick check to ensure the wires are straight, straightening them by hand if necessary.
What do I do if the zipper seems stiff and won’t zip easily the first time I use the Pod?
It is normal for a new Pod to be stiff and a little more difficult to zip and unzip. Pods “stretch out” slightly with use. If the zipper separates slightly when it is new, hold the Pod firmly and push the zipper up and down a few times. The zipper typically re-connects and with ongoing use, is completely functional.
Can I use the Pod on a cement surface?
We discourage the use of the Pod on concrete or asphalt as friction can cause a tear in the floor. Pods with tears in the floor resulting from use on concrete or asphalt are not covered by our warranty.
