How to add a TICK
We want you to be able to keep track of every piece of your equipment with One-Key, whether it’s built by Milwaukee or not. That’s why we created the TICK: a versatile tracker that allows you to monitor the locations of all your otherwise non-compatible tools from your phone.
Adding a TICK to an item is quick and easy:
From the Inventory Dashboard, click on the item that you want to add a TICK to.
Click the “Add TICK™” button.
A series of directions will display on your screen:
Open the TICK and remove the Coin Cell battery.
2. Keep the battery out for 10 seconds, then reinsert it into the TICK.
3. Now hold the TICK near your Bluetooth® activated mobile phone to sync it to your device.
4. A popup window will display. Click the “ADD TICK” button.
5. Attach the TICK to the item of your choice.
Now you can track your tool on the One-Key mobile app whenever you click the “Last Seen button”
