Designed and created by Dr. Guy G. Giacopuzzi, DDS,
Fancy Floss has 2 patents on its unique design.
The Fancy Floss will arrive ready to go with a 3 year supply of teflon floss in
place. You will need to rethread it when the take-up reel gets full, when you
replace the floss supply reel, or when the floss breaks. Here's how:
Begin by unscrewing the tension screw at the bottom of the device. Set tension
Remove the pressure foot and then the floss supply reel. Cut floss from supply
Unthread and remove all used floss from device and take-up reel and discard. You
are now ready to rethread!
Thread new floss into the right side of the handle. Note that the floss will flow
into a grove on the side of the handle. Continue threading into the top of the
right finger of the device.
Continue threading new floss into the left finger and then down in the handle
groove and into the hole in the left handle, ending at the take-up reel area,
Tie a knot in the end of the new floss. Position this knot in the "V"
groove in the bottom of the take-up reel and pull tight to secure. You can leave
a short tail of floss at the "V' or cut it.
Wrap floss around the take-up reel a few times before returning it to center holding
pen. Note that the serrated end of the take-up reel remains at the top of the
holding pen. Note the direction that the floss will wind onto the take-up reel.
8. Now place
the floss suppy reel on the holding pen. Note the floss suppy winds opposite to
the take-up reel. This creates tension and is very important. Now re-attach the
pressure foot to the end of the right handle. Note that this pressure foot attaches
to both the handle and the holding pen.
Screw on the tension screw to the end of the holding pen. You are done!
