Locating the Arm Pin Mounting Hole (with seat on flat surface not mounted to machine)

  1. The first step is to locate the bracket and hole the arm pin slides into. On each side of the seat there is a depression where an arm bracket is located (see picture on the left). A picture of the entire bracket without the cover is shown on the right.

 

  1. In the middle of this depression there is a ¾” round hole for the arm pin. This must be located correctly because a hole is cut in the cover to insert the arm pin. If cut in the incorrect location, the cover is ruined.  
  2. The hole is located by measuring about 13.25” vertically from the flat surface and then rubbing your finger across the bracket until you can locate the center keyhole.

     


    Cutting the Hole for the Arm Pin and installing the armrest

    1. Once the hole is located, use a box knife or utility knife to cut a slit about 1.25” across to allow the arm pin to engage in the hole (see picture below).
    2. Once the cut is made, the arm can be pointed to the rear of the seat as shown above.
    3. Insert the pin into the hole.
    4. Push the arm into the seat. Moving the arm up and down slightly to correctly position the small guide pin on the arm in the arm bracket slot.  It is very tight tolerance so the pin must go in straight and no vinyl can be in between the pin and the bracket.
    5. As the arm is being pushed into the seat, rotate the arm vertically. When the arm is pushed far enough into the seat, the guide pin will engage with the arm bracket and allow the arm to rotate all the way pointing forward.
    6. Repeat this process for the other side.
