Changing Sockets

1. To remove a socket use a slotted screwdriver to unscrew (but not remove) the two set screws on the outer socket holder of the wrench. Take care not to lose the screws.

2. To attach a new socket place the socket set over the ejector pin and use a bolt spline to push and turn the socket until it seats correctly; The gap between the socket and socket holder must be removed. Then re-tighten the set screws.
