1. It is not necessary to disassemble the tow bar to replace
an Autowlok button.
First, open the tow bar and extend both arms until the
buttons on both arms snap into the locked position.
Note: if the button is missing, it will be necessary to
lift the button stem (Figure 1) up slightly as you extend the
Figure 1
Figure 2
arm, so that the button stem will clear the inner arm weldment
and inner arm bushing.
2. Set the coupler on any object that will allow the tow bar
arms to rest at a convenient height to work on the button.
3. With the arms fully extended and locked, draw a straight
line with a pencil across the top of the inner arm (Figure 2),
3/4 of an inch from the edge of the black outer arm (Figure
2).
4. Depress the button (or the button stem, if the button is
missing) and slowly close the arm until the edge of the black
outer arm is even with the pencil line you drew in the previous
step.
This position will stabilize and support the button stem
so that the new button can be properly attached.
5. Remove the old button (if present) with pliers or channel
locks, being careful not to scratch the button stem.
6. Clean any residue that may be on the exposed surface
of the button stem.
Note: for easier attachment to the button stem (step 7,
below), drop the button in boiling water for five minutes. The
heat will make the button more flexible.
If you choose this method, dry the button completely
before applying the glue.
7. Follow the instructions on the supplied package of epoxy glue to mix and activate the glue, then apply enough to
lightly cover the inside of the button. Next, apply enough glue
to completely fill the grooves at the top of the button stem.
Within 30 seconds, position the button over the top of
the button stem, and tap the button down over the stem, as
far as it can go, with a rubber mallet.
CAUTION
Ensure that the button is tapped completely down, as
far as it can go. If the button is not completely down, it
will not depress the pin and spring far enough to lock
or unlock the tow bar arm.
8. Allow 24 hours for the epoxy glue to set. The button can
be depressed and released after approximately 10 minutes,
but do not pull on the button for 24 hours.
