The battery compartment is accessible from the back of the unit. Press the battery cover buckle, remove the cover and set it aside. Load four “AA” batteries into the compartment according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover and secure it.

To take out the probe, turn the unit over so its back faces you and use your thumb and index finger at the positions marked. Please note: the probe is tightly wrapped within a twisting channel that makes four full turns around the inside of the tube slot. The probe can be uncoiled to six working lengths through two probe exit ports. Unwrapping only one full turn will make the probe 27.4cm long (counting from the tube exit port to the camera head); Unwrapping two turns will make the probe 62cm long. Finally, unwrapping three turns will make the probe 95.6cm long. Each length incurs a trade-off of probe reach versus probe rigidity
To re-coil the probe, it’s important to note that when re-coiling the probe from either its short or long extended length, you must wrap it very tightly within the channel. If the camera head is not back to the original position as you finish wrapping the probe, you will not be able to squeeze the camera head  into place. If this occurs we recommend you begin re-winding the cable.

The system comes with three accessories that screw onto the end of camera head. Take off the protect ion ring before using the tip accessories. Each accessory has a specific purpose:

The 45 ° mirror enables the probe see around corners
The hook lets you retrieve inaccessible items seen by the camera probe
The magnetic pickup lets you retrieve lost or dropped metal objects, like nuts and bolts
