WARNING: Wash your hands and your surroundings first, before you start to assemble the face shield. Use the following steps or jump to the last step for a video guide.
Please prepare the following:

Buttonhole elastic band (1x)
Shield from plexiglass (1x)
The plexiglass is covered with a protective film from both sides, peel it off carefully. You can use a knife or your fingernail to lift the film up.
It is recommended to use gloves during the assembly.

Place the plexiglass in front of you, turn the side with four holes up. Place the headband near the top edge, see the four pins (protrusions). We will use them to assemble the plexiglass, starting in the middle.

The headband must be properly oriented. The pins must be on the bottom while the plexiglass is assembled. For better orientation, use the "PRUSA" sign on the sides.

For easier assembly, it is recommended to push your hand through the headband.
Mount the plexiglass on the headband using the second hole from the right. Hold it with your thumb.
Carefully straighten the right side of the headband along the plexiglass and insert the pin. As soon as the pin is through, you can release the thumb.
Continue on the other side of the headband, apply the same approach. Straighten the headband, avoid bending the plexiglass.

Step 4 Assembling the chin (lower part) on the shield

Push the plexiglass against your body (make sure it is clean/disinfected) or other solid surface.
Assemble the chin on the lower edge with three holes and push it gently. Both parts should "click".
Ensure that the chin is fully seated. There should be no gap between both parts.
