Take Care in Where you Engage the Gage

While very robust when properly installed, strain gages are very delicate prior to installation and protection by approved coatings. When handling strain gages prior to installations, use only clean blunt-nosed tweezers and be careful to avoid contacting the gage sensing element. Touch the gage by the backing only and avoid any contact with the metal foil.
