    Cheers,
    Frictionally challenged! I merely tore off a piece of medical tape, cut it to a thin and nearly invisible sliver for the back of the device. That tiny amount of grip is all that's required to facilitate The Slide, regardless the amount of lotion I've enjoyed.

    I just received the Ultramax today, I can see why it might be difficult to slide the switch.

    One thing I found helpful was to rotate the switch a bit and then try again. Presumably it rotates to another section that is less oily/frictionless/etc and makes it easier to activate. I'm still playing around with it so let me know if this is only a temporary solution. I will probably be ordering a grip tape as well.

    The switch takes a very light touch, definitely slide up not in. also polishing the top and bottom of the battery sleeve can make the a action even lighter.

    I apologize to everyone for the delayed reply, I have a hard time keeping up with all of the threads I frequent but I am taking pics right now and will post in a minute but it looks like the update from n8t will be a more elegant solution. I got the grip tape from ebay by searching "grip tape tech decks" one seller has a bunch of colors and will combine shipping if you ask. brb

    EDIT: I was having trouble posting pics in here so I just started another thread so go check out the subforum.

    Anyone find any other solutions for the switch other then Grip Tape? I know almost any oils I have tried do not work because they attract dust. Really would like to figure out something to make the alpha usable.

    I got frustrated with it being slippery and gave it to my hubby. He had the same issue and cut a thin strip of fabric bandaid and put that on the battery sleeve. Doesn't take much and it is working fine for him now.

    ^^ I believe N8T @ Innovapor is coming with a solution for the slippery slide switch issue soon.

    Yeah, he said we were all friction disabled.

    I'm getting better at it but I still have my moments.
