How do I make sure that the suction cup on Moonlite sticks to my phone?

Using Nano-suction technology, Moonlite sticks firmly to the back of the phone with the help of suction cups, which won’t damage your phone.Place your thumb inside the bullseye and your hand on the front of the Moonlite device. Press firmly for 5 seconds to activate the Nano-suction material. This ensures that the projector will stay in place during story time. If there are issues with the suction cup sticking to your phone, wipe the area with any microfiber cloth, before reattaching Moonlite.
