Step 1: Undo Fly Swat
open up fly swat from screws on outside then cut wires connected to the top. connect up the 2 blue ones and leave red one on its own then discard top part of swat. wire colours may vary but they are all pretty much the same
Step 2: Tape the Sieve to the Remaining Part of the Fly Swat
tape/attach the sieve to the remaining part of fly swat. careful not to touch any of the circuit board to the sieve as you may short it when connected
Step 3: Connecting Wires
connect the blue (2 twisted together) wires to the sieve and leave the other wire loose then put the swat cover back on. tape or screw up to you. you might need to cut away the casing to allow for sieve with a craft knife
Step 4: Away You Go
add the flocking powder to the sieve then place glue onto surface you want flocked. make sure the red wire is touching the glue then push the button on fly swat handle. shake the swat/sieve and keep hold of button and flocking powder will charge and stick to the glue. make sure the red wire always stays in the wet glue you may want to add a crocodile clip to end of the red wire to keep it attached. also you can uprate the battery in the fly swat to get a more powerful charge.
