INSTALL TONGUE PLATE STOPPER
|*1||Tongue Plate Stopper|
Position a new tongue plate stopper in the hole of the belt webbing.
Make sure that the installation direction of the tongue plate stopper is as shown in the illustration.
Hold the tongue plate stopper in the hole of the belt webbing using an adjustable wrench, and turn the adjustment screw of the adjustable wrench by hand to compress the tongue plate stopper.
When using the adjustable wrench, make sure to position the male and female parts of the tongue plate stopper parallel to each other.
Do not use pliers to compress the pin of the tongue plate stopper. They may damage the tongue plate stopper and belt webbing.
Tape the jaws of the adjustable wrench before use.
When the adjustment screw of the adjustable wrench cannot be turned by hand, tighten the adjustment screw using a pair of adjustable joint pliers until the tongue plate stopper thickness is 4.5 to 5.0 mm (0.177 to 0.197 in.). (Refer to the illustrations.)
Make sure that the male pin of the tongue plate stopper has expanded evenly in the hole of the female part and is firmly held to the belt webbing. (Refer to the illustrations.)
