Prepare for microcast brake 22 Bantam.
When installing, the head part should be removed.

Insert the inner tabs of the magnet brake body into the slit in the frame B receiver assembly and screw it in.

22 Bantam Right Handle
Once the claws and slits are aligned, push downward while turning to the left.
(Stops at the far end)
For left handles, push the handle downward while turning it to the right.

If the brake unit is securely installed, the white mark and the cutout on the unit should line up when viewed from the surface.
The tabs of the brake dial are placed in this slit.

Then, put each part back in the same way as before.

Brake Dial Installation
There is a claw on the brake dial "1".
With "1" facing up, align the cut on the brake body with the tabs on the brake dial and install.
* If you install it without the "1" up, the numbers on the dial will not match.

Install the brake dial by aligning the tabs of the brake dial with the cutouts on the brake body.

Attach the head section.

This completes the installation of the magnet brake.
