The International Tennis Federation or the ITF dictates the placement of your vibration dampener. You can place it in one of two places. Either below the bottom cross string or above the top cross string. You can slide it up or down to touch the cross string, but it can’t be anywhere else, including the interior of the string bed.
To install this, you have to first insert it perpendicularly to the center two main strings. After this, you just twist the dampener counter-clockwise and that will get the two center mains into their slots. The outer two slots then just need to have the string pulled off to the side and then slide on.

Dampener Placement. Vibration dampeners are placed or woven between the main strings of a racquet’s stringbed outside of the cross strings of a tennis racquet. There are two key reasons for this placement. First, when you’re hitting, you don’t want the tennis ball to accidentally come in contact with the vibration dampener and lead to a mishit.
Typically you will see them placed towards the bottom of the racquet where the center main string and first cross string meet. While there is no strict limit on how many stoppers you can use, many players will just use one since there is little to no affect on the dampener improving your racquet’s play.
