CLIPPING IN YOUR CLIP IN FROG

  • Do not simply slide the frog up and force it in. This will cause the front of the frog and edge of the mortis to wear down and also contribute to chock popping.

INSTEAD, WHILE SEATED

1) Hold the stick just below the frog area with your thumb pressing behind the mortis and the frog slid under the hair so that it is held loosely in place. (fig.A)

2) Place the tip of the stick against your thigh.

3) You can now safely flex the stick enough so that you can slide the frog into place with your other hand without putting tension on the hair. (fig.B)

4) Do not release the pressure on the stick until you are sure that the frog is well seated in its place.

* Use the same flexing procedure to unclip the frog.
