FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1. Mark the position of the two holes in wooden fixing plate (A) for best results the hole in pull bar (i) should be at the same height as the bottom of the V in the pulley wheel in which the pull cord runs. Drill two 8mm holes, plug and secure plate with screws.

STEP 2. Connect the pull cord to your bell pull and thread it through the pulleys you have inside the house. Tie the loose end to the hole in pull bar (i) using a double knot ensure it is captive and taut.

STEP 3. Test your bell pull and adjust cord tension as necessary. Cut off excess cord, using sharp scissors, when satisfied.

Your bell pull is now ready to use. 

STEP 4. (optional) Use pulley (B) if your bell cord requires more support.

STEP 5. (optional) use pulley (C) if you need to change the direction in which your pull cord runs from vertical to horizontal. Before fitting ensure that the bottom of the V in the pulley wheel is aligned both vertically and horizontally with other pulley/pull points.
