new clam plate coming today!
« on: Jan 11, 2022, 07:17 AM »
Hi guys like the title says I ordered a clam plate and Nils adapter. I am looking at the instructions on the Clam website.

My question is what happens when the drill chuck becomes loose? Does the auger fall off? I do not see any safety strap to hold it. Has to be something I am missing here

Thanks

looking at it more closely looks like there is a c clip that goes on top of the adapter that hold the adapter to the plate?

Step 3 shows the C-clip ...EZPZ assembly ..tip is to keep the trigger pull level w/the plate and the trigger paddle assembly  90 deg to the base plate

Another tip ..adding a Castration band..available at TSC or a rubber ring/washer will take up the slop in the trigger

Good Luck with your purchase

Google the clam plate spring mod, you will be much happier with the feel of the trigger once you do that mod. It works great and makes it much more user friendly.
