Once you have the band in place, hold the scrotum forward while pulling the EZE back until the band comes off the spreader bars. Sometimes a quick pulling motion will allow the band to come off easier. Continue holding the scrotum until you move the EZE up against the scrotum. It should be as if you are holding the scrotum with the EZE. Don’t pull back on the scrotum at this point. Now continue to tighten.
