  • Page 31: Attaching The Handstrap

    Note: Either the trigger handle is attached to the MX7 Tecton or the handstrap is attached, not both. In the absence of a trigger handle, the handstrap should be used at all times. The handstrap is pre-installed on a MX7 Tecton that is purchased without a trigger handle.
  • Page 32: Attaching The Trigger Handle

    Periodically check the trigger handle for wear and the connection for tightness. If the handle gets worn or damaged, it must be replaced. If the trigger handle connection loosens, it must be tightened or replaced before the MX7 Tecton is placed in service.
  • Page 33: Assemble The Carry Case

    The voice case does not require the clear plastic protector. 5. Slide the MX7 Tecton into the case, making sure the touch screen and keypad (including the Scan LED) are visible and accessible through the front openings of the case.
