1 Start at the top of the ear where the cartilage is thin and slide the ear cuff all of the way flush onto the ear at the opening in the cuff ring. (Holding your ear taunt with one hand helps this.)

This helps guide the ear cuff over the ridge in your cartilage and to drop into canal where it needs to sit.
