Directions for Use:

  • Start with a clean & dry workspace to ensure proper adherence.
  • Cut your desired length of BitTape. The average horse bit takes approx. 6-12", but this can vary with application or size of bit.
  • Gently pre-stretch the BitTape material.
  • Place the starting edge on the front of the bit to avoid creating a bump against the horse's tongue.
  • Overlap the BitTape approx. 50% onto itself as your wrap.
  • Once wrapped, squeeze the material firmly to ensure proper adhesion.
  • If you see signs of wear or BitTape begins to loosen, cut it off, discard & re-wrap the bit with new material.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Take your time! Once BitTape has adhered to itself, you will not be able to unwrap & re-use material.
  • For best results, apply the minimum number of layers required (over-wrapping may reduce durability).
  • Do not leave horses unattended with a wrapped bit in their mouth for an extended period of time.
  • BitTape will generally last multiple rides, depending on the efficacy of application, the number of layers applied, the style of bit, how much the horse chews & other factors.
