Stainless Steel Retainer
1 Ball Bearing - 4mm x 10mm x 3mm

Instructions for Aluminum Knob for Shimano Spinning Reels
Application of Loctite Blue 242
of the Loctite to your Adapter Kit knob is necessary to assure proper
operation. Please review these following points prior to the
installation of the knob.
Using a tooth pick, paper clip or straight pin, push a drop or two of
the Loctite down into the threaded hole of the handle spindl. Remove
the excess from the side and top of the spindle.
2. Place some Loctite on the threads of the screw. The Loctite should cover the entire circumference of the screw.
Without installing the knob, tighten down the screw into the handle
spindle, leaving about .25" of thread exposed. Wipe off the excess
Loctite from the exposed area and from under the head of the screw. Let
the screw/shank set up for several hours.
4. Remove the screw from the shank. There will be
some resistance to the removal. This resistance is necessary in order
to keep the knob rotating freely while keeping the screw and knob from
locking down. The full setting time of the Loctite is about 24 hours. Note, Loctite 242 Blue is not permanent and screw can be removed.
5. Proceed with the installation.
Attaching the Knob.1. Remove the top half of the knob & remove the bearing, retainer & Phillips screw from the cavity.
2. Place the 5mm x 10mm bearing onto the bottom of the handle spindle..
3. Place the bottom half of the knob onto the spindle.
4. Place the retainer and then the 4mm x 10mm bearing into the knob cavity..
5. Install the phillips screw on top of the bearing and tighten down just until the knob does not rotate freely.
6 Then back off on the screw a bit to permit free rotation.
7. Replace the top half of the knob.
The knob may not rotate freely when the screw is tightened down. This
condition has been implemented by design in order to simplify the
installation. Repeat step 6. above.
