Pocket Dimensions/Installation Guidelines (Slide Retention Application Shown)

NOTES: 1 L ubricate all metal-to-metal contact areas before first use and every 100,000 cycles (or more frequently as required). Use a good grade of moldmakers’ non-melting type grease rated for the operating temperature to be encountered. 2 Do not operate at temperatures exceeding 225°F. 3 If two or more retainers are used, mount them uniformly to provide a balanced operation. Retainer sizes should not be mixed in a multiple retainer application. 4 Surface to which retainer is mounted should not prevent retainer from pivoting freely. 5 Replace retainer assembly and/or dowel pin when total wear in jaw area or on dowel pin exceeds .010. 6 Replace compression spring every 1,000,000 cycles or as required, following procedures packaged with retainer.

NOTES: 1. Dimension F, the distance from dowel pin centerline at end of slide travel and centerline of shoulder screw, is important. Overtravel of dowel pin beyond clearance provided at back of jaw area could result in damage to retainer.
