  6. While wearing your headset, press the call control button on your headset to activate the lifter.
  7. If you do not hear a dial tone, skip to the section titled "Troubleshooting No Dial Tone." If you do hear a dial tone, the lifter is set correctly and needs no adjustment. Proceed to step 5.
  8. Set the lifter by removing the protective strips from the mounting tape on the underside of the lifter (see below), then gently place the lifter on the desk phone in the pre-determined position. Press firmly to adhere.

To install the additional parts, if necessary:
Extender Arm Use the extender arm when the handset lifter needs additional stability lifting and returning the handset to the cradle.
  1. Slide the extender arm onto the lifter.
  2. Stabilizers can be shifted left and right.  Position stabilizers on outsides of the handset to gently grip the phone.
