stand right above it *may be wear a helmet* lol or just move your face out of the way , put your foot down on the carpet like your squatting and just pull straight up .

i also ordered the one from ebay and as mentioned before the LED is red not orange. It also took close to a month for it to arrive.

I also used a very thick rubber band about 1/4" inch thick ( broccoli stalk rubber band) vs ziptie as the ziptie was getting loose after a few shifts
