How to pair the Swivl base and marker?

There are circumstances when pairing your Swivl base and marker is required. The most common reason for needing to pair is when a lost or defective marker is replaced with a new marker and you are using the same base.

How do I know if pairing of base and marker is required?
There will be a solid red light on the Swivl marker and on the base next to the power button.

Here are the simple steps to pair your Swivl marker to base:

1. Turn both the marker and base on by holding down the power button for two-three seconds. (You should have a single red light on the Marker and the Base)
2. Press both buttons on the base at the same time. (No holding is required)
3. Quickly, press and hold the check mark button and the power button on the marker. You should see the red light on the marker and the base flicker and then turn green after 2-3 seconds and then you can release the buttons. If it did not work, go back to step 2 and try to reduce time between step 2 and step 3.


Does the Swivl work with tripods?

Yes, the Swivl has a 1/4-20 standard tripod nut built into the bottom of the device. So, you can mount it on top of the standard tripods.
