wrist, and either ankle. The adhesive side of the M9 Paper attaches
to the nonadhesive side.

with movement. However, do not wear it so loosely that it
may slip down. Detector paper will not stick to dirty,
oily, or greasy surfaces. The M9 Paper is also attached to
a vehicle, a piece of equipment, or supplies at locations
where it can be seen by the driver, commander, or ground
sentry. The detector paper must be wrapped around parts of
the equipment where it will not be stepped on.
