Handle Assembly (#103563)


  1. Place the reel on a flat surface, with the faceplate up. Use the Phillips or Robertson screwdriver to undo the three screws holding the faceplate to the hub. Remove the faceplate.
  2. For Meters with a Molex connection, disconnect the connector that attaches the faceplate electronics to the tape. For Meters with tape leads connected directly to the circuit board, press down on the push-release fittings and pull to remove the tape leads. Remember which lead is removed from each terminal – this is important when reconnecting.
  3. Use the needle nose pliers to stabilize the spindle, while using the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the handle to the faceplate. Remove the old handle assembly.
  4. Take the new handle assembly, insert the spindle into the top of the handle, and center the spindle over the hole in the front of the faceplate.
  5. Slide the washer over the screw and use the screw to secure the new handle from the back of the faceplate, while stabilizing the spindle with the pliers.
  6. Reconnect the Molex connector from the faceplate to the tape or, push down on the white terminals on the circuit board, insert the leads, then release the terminals.
  7. Reconnect the faceplate.
