Field Servicing Information

Most hooks are designed to be field serviceable.To replace a lead wire, pull on the plunger until it slips free of the body. Strip lead wire 3/4" (19mm), feed wire through plunger and wrap around terminal as shown in figure 1. Solder and cut off excess wire at solder point. Reassemble part, making sure the terminal and nylon fins enter their respective grooves. Keep slack in lead wire pulled out while assembling to prevent binding.

NOTE: To disassemble XM Micro-Hook connectors or leads, actuate plunger to expose hook and grasp behind hook with long nose pliers before pulling plunger off. Failure to do so will result in damage to part.
