How to Set up the Energy Cleaner...

When using untreated aluminum screen with the Energy Cleaner on one’s bed, there are at minimum two options to consider:

1) Put the screen on top of the mattress (what I do because I flip and turn mine every 3 weeks)
2) Put the screen under the mattress but on top of the box spring (an option if you do not turn or flip your mattress)

I took a roll of untreated aluminum screen which was about 8' in length by about 3' in width, and trimmed the length so that it reached from one side of my bed to the other, with the 3’ becoming the length; this accommodated both my spouse and me. If you are the only person using the screen, you might consider using the entire 8’ for the length and the 3’ for the width. 

Ultimately, every side of the screen needs to be covered twice with duct tape. This protects the mattress and the sheet from being damaged by the little wire ends that might (and frequently do) come through.

Again there are at minimum two options for attaching the Energy Cleaner box cord with the alligator clip:

1) Thread wire through the screen and then clip the alligator clip to the wire (I use copper)
2) Clip the alligator clip directly to the screen.

If you go with option 2) for attaching the alligator clip, you won't be able to use the bathtub for bathing in the energized water that John Moore has recommended on his show unless you buy a second cord from Tom (which I did).

Unroll the sheet of aluminum screen on a large surface. It helps me to put a couple of pillows on the screen to keep it flat so I can work with it.

Personally, I prefer to lay the duct tape sticky side UP and gently lay the screen on top of it, keeping the edge of the screen near the center of the duct tape, and after cutting to the length wanted, fold the tape up and over the screen edging, pressing firmly into place. I recommend  “Duct Tape” only. “Duck Tape” is not the same and won’t give the performance of the higher priced and higher quality tape. Remember, this must be done TWICE on all four edges of the screen.

If you are going to attach the clip directly to the screen, before covering the fourth edge with Duct Tape, lay the alligator clip and screen on top of the Duct Tape (sticky side up).

Allow between one and a half and two inches for securing the clip to the screen.

Trim the Duct Tape as shown, cutting up to the clip on both sides.  You will wrap the Duct Tape around the clip, securing it.

Remember, you are doing everything with Duct Tape TWICE.

After securing the clip to the screen, cover the fourth edge of the screen with the second application of Duct Tape on each side of the clip.

This secures the clip to the screen so it won’t come off.

You will want to check the screen placement and integrity of the Duct Tape at minimum every two weeks. The Tape can begin “rolling,” and the screen may begin folding in areas. Stretching and straightening the screen repeatedly will eventually result in tearing the weakened screen; when this happens, it is time to replace the screen. Mine usually last a few months.

If you have a mattress you do not turn or flip, you may want to consider putting the screen UNDER the mattress. The energy generated by the Cleaner will reach you, though perhaps not as strong.

Alternatively, if you have plans for using the alligator clip with a metal spoon in a tub of water, or attaching the clip to a smaller piece of aluminum screen or aluminum foil for a targeted application, you may want to “thread” some wire through holes in the screen instead of attaching the alligator clip directly to the screen.

Using a toothpick or similar sharp object, gently “poke” several holes through the screen. In this example, I have already covered the edge twice with Duct Tape.

Thread the wiring through the holes.

In this example, the copper wiring is being threaded through several holes.

After threading the wiring through the holes, double back and wrap the wiring around itself to prevent it from becoming separated from the screen.

I put Duct Tape on both sides to cover the copper wiring, protecting the wiring from snagging on bedding.

One end of this copper wiring is attached to the screen, and the other end of the wiring has been formed into a loop for attaching to the alligator clip.

Any kind of wire could be used, not just copper. I heard Tom say on John Moore's podcast that one person used a chain of paper clips and it worked just fine which suggests you don't have to have copper wire. As long as the wiring is metallic to conduct the static electric energy, it should work just fine.℠ (Right-side navigation page SSI insertion)
