- Raise forks to an easy accessible working height (approx. 4 to 6 feet)
- Decide where you want to mount it to the forklift carriage - left, right, or center. (Center being the most common.) Note: Be sure to leave room to access the battery compartment – that way the battery can be replaced without having to remove the unit.
- Hook the bottom of the Tine-Guide housing to bottom of the carriage and push the top up flush against the carriage. [See Figure 1 & 2]
- Using a "9/16 socket wrench", tighten the bolts securely down against the groove on the back side of the carriage lip. [See Figure 2] (Note: be sure the unit is plumb.)
- Tighten jam nuts snugly against top of unit. [See Figure 2]
- Remove the battery cover and place the battery in the battery compartment.
- Connect the connector on the battery to the connector found in the battery compartment.
- The laser may not be level internally. The laser head located on the bottom of the unit [See Figure 3] allows adjustments to be made to both the vertical height and horizontal level of the laser.
Mounting the Tine-Guide Laser Unit
Connecting to Battery:
Adjusting the Laser Line:
- Calibrating: Lay the Tine-Guide box across the end of the forks to visually see the location of the line
- Calibrating: Remove the faceplate using a 3/32" Allen wrench. [See Figure 3]
- Calibrating: You can now see the laser lens housing (Brass). [See Figure 3] Insert a small thin flat-head screwdriver into the slot in the laser face being careful not to touch the laser's lens. Now turn the laser left or right to level the laser line. (Note: You should only have to move the laser a small amount. It may also be hard to turn, but be careful not to slip and damage the laser.)
- Height Adjustment: To adjust laser level, take the 5/64" Allen wrench and turn the set screw on the bottom of the unit clockwise or counter clockwise until the laser is aligned with the tine tips. [See Figure 3] (Note: You can now adjust the laser level a little above, below or right on the tines, your choice.)
