Step 1: Attach the cork bumper to the wood dock
Take a long screw and drop it into one of the holes. Use your finger to hold it in place as you flip the dock around.
Find the brass insert through the second hole, drop and screw in, and screw it not quite all the way.
Step 2: Install the cable clamp.
Parts needed: Wood base, plastic cable clamp, short screw, screwdriver, an official Apple Lightning cable, and your iPhone.
Thread the small screw into the brass insert, just barely tightening, enough to keep the clamp from falling out.
Thread the Lightning cable through the hole. You might have to jiggle it a little, but eventually it will go through.
Make sure your device is sitting flush with the wood, then flip it over and tighten the screw all the way.
Step 3: Align and tighten the cork bumper to the correct depth.
Plug your device into the (now tightened) Lightning plug. Then, slide the cork bumper so it is straight and pressed up against the back of your iPhone.
Step 5: Remove the film over the micro-suction pads.
You can peel the film off with your fingernails, but tape makes it really easy. Stick the piece to one of the ends, lift up, and the film will come right off.
