With proper cleaning and care, your ankle brace will last you all season long.
Carefully remove the inner pad (attached via Velcro®) and hand wash with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Air dry prior to use. Do not machine wash or dry.
Hinge Lubrication for Squeaking
Because of the thermoplastic resin used in Ultra Zoom and Ultra CTS braces, the hinges may dry out and begin to squeak. If your brace develops a squeak in the hinge area, spray silicone lubricant (such as WD-40 Silicone Spray) in the rivet and hinge area, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.
