Using backup tools
To save the recovery seed of a hardware wallet first press the required letters from inside to outside from the brackets with your fingers. In some cases, this is difficult, as the plates are very tight.

Then you screw out the covers on both sides with the help of the small screwdriver, so that you can insert the plates in order. It should be noted that you can only use the first four letters per word. However, according to the BIP39 standard, this is also sufficient to suggest the right word. If a word has fewer letters, you can fill the gaps with the back of any plate. In addition, the plate for the letter “b” is also used for “q”, the same applies to the pairs “d” and “p” and “n” and “u”. Finally, simply screw the covers back on and store ELLIPAL Metal Mnemonic safely.
How secure is ELLIPAL Metal Mnemonic?
ELLIPAL Metal Mnemonic promises to be fire and water resistant. Compared to paper, the product is certainly more robust, but in extreme conditions it does not perform very well compared to competing products.

After his fire and corrosion test, there was nothing left of the product. Already during the fire test the metal melted and the worst it reacted to the acid. The final pressure test did not take place. His full report can be read here: Ellipal Mnemonic Metal Review.
