Rewinder Installation (For installing on existing Bottle-Matic or Flex+Matic in the field)
Note for Flex+Matics ONLY!
The rewinder will sit down & tilted back - relative to the Bottle-Matic
- if you're installing on a Flex+Matic
. Check the product pages I've just linked for pictures. You must install the forward contact point of the rewinder onto the top 3/8" chrome bar in the feeding mechanism. The silver bar is spring loaded, so we often slide a 3/8" rod in from the righthand side, keeping the spring in place, which allows one to slide on the bracket. Mock everything up first so that the bracket isn't put on backwards accidentally. If you don't have a 3/8" rod, find something of similar diameter, or even a screwdriver is better than nothing in a pinch. The spring will shoot straight out of the top of the block if the silver bar is removed. Not only can it be dangerous if a spring goes flying, it can be a challenge getting the bar back in.
