Tips and Tricks for the Onye

Inserting Batteries:

To open Onye, hold onto the silicone grip section with one hand, and the bottom of the toy, under the second silver band, with the other. Turn the top to the left slightly and the toy will open. Keeping a light grip and turning the toy very gently seems to work the best. 

Insert 3 AAA batteries. If this is your first time opening the toy, remove the black plastic insert from inside the toy before attempting to insert your batteries. The batteries are inserted into the top of the toy, the portion with the silicone grip and on/off button. 2 batteries are inserted with the positive end facing up, and 1 is inserted with the negative end up. Make sure that you follow the diagrams on the inside of the toy.

To close, make sure that the orange dot on the top of the toy is lined up with the orange dot on the bottom of the toy. Some force will be required to close the toy securely as the fit is much snugger now that the batteries are inside. Slide the top and bottom together until there is no visible gap between the second silver band and the bottom of the toy. 

To check that it's been closed properly, turn the top of the toy to the right with both ends held firmly together. The turn is slight, no more than a quarter of an inch. If you try to pull the two halves apart, they will stay together. This is your best confirmation that the toy is closed properly.

Turning On/Off and Using:

When you press the power button once, the toy will vibrate at its lowest setting, pushing it again will up the intensity to medium, and pushing it once more will take you to the high setting. If you continue to press the button, you can cycle through the 5 different pulsation patterns; the final "pattern" will turn Onye off. To turn off the toy without going through all the settings, simply hold down the button until the toy turns off.

Tips:

Remember that the turns of the 2 halves of the Onye are only slight. Always match up the orange dots. You can overturn the two halves, so if your Onye won’t stay together when the batteries are not inside, take a deep breath and try again more gently. Be careful with the orange tabs and remember that the Onye is a delicate toy and can be broken if too much force is applied.
