Step 2

Place the key in the hole until it is firmly in place. There is a bend in the key to prevent you from inserting the key too far.  So don’t worry you won’t “poke” the patient!

Step 3

Pushing the key towards the back of the mouth, you will notice the wheel in the expander will rotate and the new hole will appear. The rotation stops when the key meets the back of the expander.
