2 Fold box [SH-BX0055]

Take your un-folded box [SH-BX0055] placing so that the fold creases are facing you and start by folding up the flaps on the left side of the box as shown.

Next fold those side in towards the middle, as shown.

Now take the longer flap and fold it over the two side flaps we brought in towards the middle, as shown.

Repeat this process for the right side flaps.

4 Place Aerostruder into Korrvu

We will now place the Aerostruder tool head into the Korrvu [SH-PA0049].

First take the Korrvu and fold up the flaps without the finger holes. This will loosen the plastic wrap so we can slide the tool head under it.

Now slide the tool head under the plastic wrap. Make sure when you slide the tool head in, the tool head should be lying on the motor with the heat sink fan facing you.

Next, fold the flaps without the finger holes down. This will tighten the plastic of the korrvu over the tool head.

Now we can fold the flaps with the finger holes up so we can place the tool head into the box.

Now that the tool head is in the box we can add the accessories.

First we need to pack the allen wrenches into its bag. Take the 2.5mm allen wrench [TL-HD0226] and the 4mm wrench [TL-HD0227] and place them into their bag [SH-PG0001].

Now we will place all the accessories into the box. First place the allen wrenches towards the back of the box, then place the glue stick [TL-CS0117] over the allen wrenches, then the Congratulations card [DC-MS0060] then place the firmware update card [DC-MS0054] over all that.

7 Close and tape box

We now have all the accessories in the box, close the box and take it to one of the uline tape machines.

On the tape machine first make sure you have the brown tape loaded into the machine. Select the 12" length on the machine.

Place the tape with slightly more depth on the top of the box.

Then we will fold down the sides of the tape as shown.

Now fold the sides of the tape in towards the middle.

Lastly, fold the tape down securing the lid of the box closed.
