Timed Lockbox

My box won't unlock!

If your Lockbox does not Unlock after a timer ends or after you enter an override code, the box has probably been "overstuffed". This means there is upward pressure from the contents on the lid.

To solve, press down on the lid, and manually re-lock (press and hold middle button for 5 seconds). Continue pressing down on the lid, and enter the override code for lockbox & standard timer (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left Right).

Remember that this code only works in Standard Mode! We do not publish a Fortress Mode override code, please contact us for assistance.

Help, I accidentally set a Fortress Mode timer!

We can't tell the difference between a true emergency and a break-down of will. So please only contact us in case of a true emergency or mistake.

You can contact us using the form above to receive an emergency override code. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

Where can I find the full instruction manual?

Ripple Kinetic Wall Art

Is warping normal?

The "wings" of your product are made from 0.5" thick plywood using tropical species of wood. Based on the temperature and humidity of your home, minor warping may occur as it adjusts. This should not be very noticeable when viewing the pattern from the front but may be noticed from the side.

Minor warping will not effect the beauty or function of the product. If your product experiences warping that leads to pieces rubbing against each other, please contact us so we can provide you with a replacement.

Is this a fan?

No, this is not a fan, it is a designed to be a piece of art which creates a gentle reminder to take a break to pause & reset during your busy day.

Help, my Ripple stops operating after a short time running

Each "wind up" rotation powers 15 minutes of run time of the product -- make sure it has been wound up at least a few times before giving it a gentle clock-wise spin.

If this is not the issue, then there may be friction based on how the 2 layers were installed onto the wall mounted base. Try loosening the front cap and gently wiggling the 2 layers to ensure they are not pressed too tightly against the rubber stoppers. Or try applying a small amount of oil to the metal pole coming from the base. Do not attempt to pull on the wall mounted base gear!

If this does not resolve the issue, please contact us so we can help! Write us at: support@mindsightnow.com

I'm having trouble assembling the product, how can I get help?

If you misplaced the assembly manual, you can access here it.

If you're having trouble with a step in the process, feel free to contact us and we can reply back or even schedule a quick video call with you.

Ripple Desk Décor

Is this a fan?

No, this is not a fan, it is a designed to be a piece of art which creates a gentle reminder to take a break to pause & reset during your busy day.

What's the best way to use Ripple?

Having a prompt to pause and take a deep breath can be extremely helpful in today's always-on, meeting filled world. Place Ripple somewhere near your work area as a way to notice, pause, and use.

Take a few minutes to turn on, watch the rotating pattern, and take a few deep breaths. The motion is a helpful anchor to tune out distractions and allow your mind to reset and regain your creative senses.

How long will it run for?

With a full charge, Ripple will rotate for approximately 8 hours. But we've added an Auto shut off after 1 hour feature in case you forget to turn it off.
