Tips for protecting your SkyTrak Launch Monitor


Stated below are some ideas for your SkyTrak Launch Monitor to help keep it away from danger should you not currently be in the market for a protective case. Please be advised, these are only tips and do not serve as an amendment of coverage to the current warranty policies for your SkyTrak Launch Monitor. Damage done by club and ball strikes are not covered under warranty (refer to the warranty for further details). 


  1.  Keep your SkyTrak Launch Monitor away from your swing area as far as possible.
    • The current limitations of your SkyTrak Launch Monitor states that you can have it as far as 12.5" (31.75 cm) away. 
    • Ensure that your SkyTrak Launch Monitor is level to your practice mat and that the laser beam makes contact to your ball/Tee.
    • Adjust your SkyTrak Launch Monitor as needed to acquire an accurate reading.
  2. Place impact bags or common soft materials (pillows, towels, blankets, etc.) around your SkyTrak Launch Monitor to help shield it against errant shots.
    • Be sure to not place anything in front of the large, dark optics lens/laser area as it will render your SkyTrak Launch Monitor unable to detect a shot.
    • Keep in mind not to have your SkyTrak Launch Monitor buried in protective materials, make sure that it will have enough air-flow to keep it running at its peak performance.
  3. Use indoor practice balls instead of regular golf balls.
    • Indoor Practice balls are smaller and lighter and likely to cause less potential damage than use of a normal-outdoor golf ball. 
      • Indoor Practice balls come in many forms (Foam, Plastic, Whiffle). Be sure to research for indoor practice golf balls to pick out a type that best suits your practice area. 
    • Beginners should exclusively use indoor practice balls as they aren't as skilled in swing and/or shot control and will likely result in an errant shot.
