1. The height of the support-shelf under the neck-foot should be adjusted to your instrument. In the correct position the scroll should just touch the soft surface.
If the scroll is hanging in the air you should lower the support shelf (pulling it first with your fingers). The ”instruction” is to be found here: https://youtu.be/K4r3ecsE--8 If you switch between a modern and a baroque instrument you should adjust the height of the neck-foot support each time (the difference is quite big).
2. Please, check that your violin is not too big for the ViolinCase. You should hear a click after pressing top and bottom part with your fingers? See here: https://youtu.be/sLFyyikaZyk After attaching all the elastic around - check if all the seals are tight.
3. A support pillow above a tail piece/chinrest should keep a violin steady in place and prevent a bridge from touching the ”celling” of a case. It’s difficult to install the pillow of a hight which is right for a particular instrument. Baroque violins have no chinrest and some modern instruments have very high chinrests (up to 8 cm). That’s why we don’t instal any pillows but we add separate, self-adhesive sponge supports of different sizes: 10 mm and 20 mm. You can use only one of them or you can combine them, varying the hight of this sponge support between 10 and 30 mm. Just remove the protective paper and press the glue side to the fabric of the lock, above the tail piece. If necessary, glue another sponge at the top of the first one.
4. The Strap System and the Soft Neoprene Cover to connect the ViolinCase and the BowCase. We install one of them on the ViolinCase, so (after sliding the BowCase inside) it’s ready for use. You can open the ViolinCase with the BowCase attached to the cover. We suggest to keep the ”empty” Strap System or the Neoprene Cover attached, even when you put the ViolinCase into the SuitCase. If you want to disconnect or exchange Strap System for the Cover, you should first remove the plastic click-mechanism on one side of the strap. The whole procedure is shown here: https://youtu.be/uKv9bMbCc5M
5. Kensington ClickSafe Combination Lock (optional accessory) and all the Trinity Cases. It prevents an unauthorized opening of the Violin Case and the BowCase and secures all 3 cases by fixing it to a firm object. Just click the lock cylinder onto the cotter-pin installed in the ViolinCase and it’s locked. A 4-wheel number sequence can be set to an easily remembered code so you can put it to work quickly. It’s also resettable to any of 10,000 possible combinations. Of course you don’t need to use it; the case will still be securely closed. To see here how it works go to: https://youtu.be/sTCHu8lrT74

6. The Backpack Straps for the SuitCase (optional accessory). You can store it in one of the pockets. Attach the straps to the loops on the top of the hard back and to the wheels (protecting your clothes from dirt at the same time). Without removing the ViolinCase and the BowCase you can cary the suitcase on your back; perfect when you travel with another big luggage, or there’s a lot of snow around.
That’s how to put it on:
7. Big Accessory Pocket on the BowCase There is a small hole to connect the Pocket to the pin of the BowCase.
8. You can carry the BowCase on its own, using the light shoulder strap (included). You can connect it to the BowCase Cover:
or to the Strap System
9. Please keep the ViolinCase closed when not in use.
