The Frog Juicer was developed to only work with isolated frogs. However, several users have managed to use the Frog Juicer with live frogs by making the following simple modification.
- Paint the inside of the rails where the points contact them to insulate the points from the rails.
- Attach an output from the Frog Juicer to the frog section.
Isolating the points from the rails will eliminate simultaneous shorts that will prevent the DCC booster from starting up when it is turned on.
