Securing the Adjusting Screw in NEURO VARIO, NEURO VARIO-CLASSIC and NEURO VARIO-SPRING
The adjusting screw must be secured in order to guarantee proper functioning of the system ankle joints and to prevent unintentional adjustment of the orthosis’ alignment. Especially for this purpose, the system joints are supplied with a premounted securing pin for the adjusting screw. If the adjusting screw turns or loosens, it must be secured again with the securing pin as follows:
- Unscrew the adjusting screw out of the thread. Demount the cover plate and drive out the premounted securing pin with a pin punch.
- Turn the worn position of the securing pin by about 90°.
- Put it in again and mount the cover plate.
- Now, screw the adjusting screw into the desired position. Additionally, secure the adjusting screw with LOCTITE® 243 medium strength. Let the adhesive harden for approximately 24 hours until it has reached its final strength.
