  • Page 22: Instructions for installing arms with rivets
    Directions recommend setting the rivets using a sharp hammer blow from inside the case, but it may be difficult to swing the hammer in this limited space. Therefore we recommend placing a small drop of "Loctite" or another slow cure, cyanoacrylate glue (super glue) inside the cap before attempting to squeeze the two parts of the rivet together. This method should also serve to set the rivets if there are small variations of the inside diameter of the rivet cap.
