FLOTEs Are Shipping (and Special Instructions for KS Backers).
FLOTEs are starting to ship out, and although the ramp up period is still going to take some time, your FLOTE will be arriving at your doorstep soon.
As a Kickstarter backer, you will be receiving a commemorative plate in your package. This is a limited-edition engraved stainless steel disc that identifies you as an original Kickstarter backer of FLOTE.
Because the plate is only for Kickstarter backers, there is no mention of it in the Owners Guide that is included in the package or online at the website, FloteYourTablet.com. So here are some special instructions I'd like you to be aware of.
First, the polished stainless steel surface is surprisingly easy to scratch. Please take care when handling it.
Second, please look at these assembly instructions, which are both online and in the Owners Guide you'll be receiving.
Before following Step #1, you'll need to first place the plate on top of the cylinder on the base, aligning the holes. Then simply follow the instructions to place the Vertical Support Pole into place.
Please note: you can always remove or insert the plate at a later date by removing the Vertical Support Pole (you do this by loosening the two retaining screws located on either side of the cylinder with a common flat-head screwdriver and pulling the pole up and out).

When you do receive your FLOTE, I hope that you'll let me know what you think. Our goal was to exceed your expectations, and I truly believe that we did so.
Thank you again for your incredible support and patience. Just think: because of you and your support, an innovative, useful and beautiful new product has been released into the marketplace.
