Hello! I am your new „Tinofix“
My young friend Leonie has been so kind to show to you how to put it on

Make sure you do not stand the tiger on my back on its head. Picture 1 shows you how to grip the double hook with your left hand and to slip your right arm through the loop as you would when slipping your arm into the righthand sleeve of your coat or jacket.
Picture 2 shows you how to grip the double hook with your right hand now and to slip your left arm through the other loop just as you would slip your arm into the left sleeve of your coat or jacket
Picture 3 shows you how Leonie clicks the ring (without a hook) into the small eyelet of the double hook.
All that is still missing is your fagottino. You hook it into the large eyelet of the double hook.
