4. Use character tiles to arrange your data.
Choose the character tiles from the container. We recommend setting out each segment of your code in advance on a flat surface, then sliding them onto the core one by one.

If you are storing a recovery seed phrase longer than 12 words, use only the first four characters of each word.
For a twelve word mnemonic seed phase, you can store unabbreviated words.

Use character tiles to arrange your data.

5. If necessary, use separators to segment information

The system of separators is flexible, use them in the manner that is most relevant to you.

If necessary, use separators to segment information

6. Slide tiles onto core
After your data is set, slide the pierced tiles onto the core one at a time. This is the perfect time to double (or triple) check your work. Use the system you prefer, but we recommend inserting the data in order, so the tiles for the last word are inserted at the end of the process.

Slide tiles onto core

7. Place and fold fastener to hold tiles
Just bend the tiny strap with your fingers >90degrees. Put it on the core, and pull firmly to close it into place.
