Step 1

Remove the T10/T25 bit from the screwdriver handle and reinstall with the T10 bit facing out.

Step 2

Locate the T10 torx screw in the center of each rotating latch.

  • Go to Step 3 to loosen latches
  • Go to Step 4 to tighten latches

Step 3

Turn each screw counterclockwise (lefty loosey) 1/2 turn to loosen the latches by 0.25mm. Pull each latch with your fingers to make sure they are extended and then try the fit on the grille.

Repeat up to four times (two full turns) as needed.

Important! Contact support before proceeding past two turns. If loosened more than two turns, the SnapPlate could become stuck in the grille and it may be very difficult to remove.

Step 4

Turn each screw clockwise (righty tighty) 1/2 turn to tighten the latches by 0.25mm and try the fit on the grille.

Repeat as needed.
