INSTRUCTIONS FOR A STANDARD TUFF TOE PATTERN
Step 1: Mark area
Take a market and trace an outline o f where you will be applying Tuff Toe. For a standard toe application, you will start at the front and go back to the area just in front of your big toe knuckle. Steer clear of fore foot the flex point.
If you need protection in other areas then take a look at our other application patterns Hot Spot, Extended Toe, Extended + Heel, and Reverse Toe.
Step 2: sand
Make sure to clean and sand the application area well. You'll not only prep the cleats leather and foam but also the sole where you will be applying Tuff Toe. We recommend taking at least mins of sanding, if you use a dremmel then take :30 to :60 seconds to rough up the cleat.
Step 3: Equalize material
You'll need to equalize the cartridge to ensure both part A and part B extract evenly. To do this, simply attach the mixing tip and dispense an inch of material as shown above.

step 4: apply Base
Apply the adhesive first to the Molded Pro, you should have enough to apply sparingly, bout don't overload it. Smear the adhesive to an even layer with the included popsicle stick.
Next, move onto the cleat and do the same as you did with the Molded Pro, applying to an even layer then spreading with the popsicle stick.

Step 5: apply
Change out your mixing tip for a new one. Then grab your cleat in your off hand and begin applying the material from the corner down.
Step 6: Smooth
The material is still setting up and if you simply put the boot down the material will run to the sole. You want the material to be focused on the toe tip, so rotate the boot for 1-2 mins with the toe tip pointed down.
Step 7: rotate
Rotate the cleat for a good 1-2 minutes while keeping the toe facing down. This will allow the material to self level and focus on the areas where you want the to have more protection.
A full 24 hrs is recommended for a full cure, however you will see that within 90 mins the material will be 80% cured. If you have to use your cleats before the 24 hrs we recommend putting them in a warm area to help speed up the process (a hot car or in front of a heater works great).
