ASSEMBLY & ADJUSTMENTS
ATTACHING THE HANDLE
The handle comes packaged in sections, which are connected together by internal coated
wiring running through the middle of all the handle pieces.
1. Carefully remove packing material and plastic wrapping around tool and handle pieces,
being careful to keep pieces connected.
2. Remove the Knobs and Curved Head Bolts from the plastic bag.
3. Remove the black plastic tube coating from the piece of wire between the Handle and
the Upper Tube (Fig. 1). This will enable the bolt to fit through the smaller diameter Handle.
4. Slide the Handle down into the end of the Upper Tube so the holes line up (Fig. 3a).
Carefully insert bolt, being careful to avoid covered wire inside handle shaft (Fig. 3b).
Fasten together by tightening Knob onto Curved Head Bolt.
5. Slide Upper Tube down into Lower Tube so that holes line up. Do not remove the black
plastic tube coating from the wire at this connection.There are two positions available for
adjustment to your preferred height (Fig.4a). NOTE: When you first insert the bolt,
it may be necessary to wiggle it carefully to get it past the coated wire inside the
Tube. Fasten together with second Knob and Curved Head Bolt (Fig.4b).
