1. Determine the Best Position for Mounting:
a. Loosen the mount plate to ball post set
screw (A), the angle pivot (B), and the
visor arm to ball post clamp(C). The pivot
on the arm joint (D) should be straight
and snug.
b. Holding the visor arm level rotate the
three loosened joints and find a location
that will provide structural support to the
c. Mark this location.
Mounting the Ball Joint:
a. Remove the #8-32 by 5/8 inch socket head cap screw from the
end of the visor clamp(c).
b. Slide the visor arm off the ball post.
c. Position the ball post and mounting plate assembly in the location
identified in step 1. Position the mounting plate so the set screw
in the side is accessible.
d. Mark the locations (2 or 3 depending on the mount plate) and
provide structural support for the #10-32 by 1 inch mounting
screws. (Rivnuts or other captive fastening devices are
e. Loosely attach the mounting plate and ball joint assembly in place.

3. Setting the Pivot Mount Angle:
a. Rotating the ball joint assembly in the mount plate and the ball joint itself
position the arm mounting post as near to vertical as possible.
b. Holding the post, lightly tighten the mounting plate set screw (A).
c. Lightly tighten the ball joint socket head cap screw (B).
4. Mounting the Visor Arm:
a. Reposition the visor arm assembly on
the post and start the #8-32 socket head
cap screw (C) being careful not to disturb
the angles set in step 3.
b. Supporting the weight of the visor arm
assembly verify that appropriate
coverage is provided without interfering
with aircraft control operations.
5. Final Tightening of the Mounting Assembly:
a. If necessary remove visor arm from post as done in step 2a and 2b.
b. Fully tighten the mount bracket to airframe screws
c. Fully tighten the set screw in the side of the mount bracket (A).
d. Fully tighten the socket head cap screw in the ball joint (B)
6. Attaching the Visor Arm:
a. When attaching the arm the red screw knob and slide assembly should be
away from the pilot or co-pilot. Notice the visor can be rotated in the block to
match the required configuration.
b. Reattach the visor arm to the ball joint post and secure by installing the #8-32
socket head cap screw (C) and tension until it allows smooth but not free
movement. When properly assembled the entire post will be covered and
there will be no gap between the ball joint shoulder and the arm block
7. Final Tensioning, Operation, and Use:
a. Tension all the socket head cap screws in the arm until all the motions are
smooth but not free. Tensioning can be performed to individual preference.
b. Using the red knob tension for the sliding motion can be set to individual
c. Remove the lens protective covering before use.
d. For continued airworthiness, periodically clean both sides of the visor with
mild soap or approved aircraft windscreen cleaner and verify appropriate
tension level for all the pivot joints.
