1.0 MEANING OF SAFETY SIGNAL WORDS
A safety related message is identified by a safety alert symbol and a signal word to indicate the level of risk involved with a
particular hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.6-2006, the definitions of the four signal words are as follows:
DANGER
DANGER indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious
injury.
WARNING
WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious
injury.
CAUTION
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor
or moderate injury.
NOTICE
NOTICE is used to address practices not related to personal injury.
2.0 SAFETY
The Task Force Tips G-Force nozzles are designed to provide excellent performance under most fire fighting conditions. Their
rugged construction is compatible with the use of fresh water (see section 3.0 for saltwater use) as well as fire fighting foam
solutions.
DANGER
WARNING
WARNING
WARNING
WARNING
An inadequate supply of nozzle pressure and/or flow will cause an ineffective stream and can
result in injury, death, or loss of property. See flow graphs in section 4.0 or call 800-348-2686 for
assistance.
The nozzle may be damaged if frozen while containing significant amounts of water. Such
damage may be difficult to detect visually and can lead to possible injury or death. Any time the
nozzle is subject to possible damage due to freezing, it must be tested by qualified personnel
before being considered safe for use.
This equipment is intended for use by trained personnel for firefighting. Their use for other
purposes may involve hazards not addressed by this manual. Seek appropriate guidance and
training to reduce risk of injury.
Nozzle reaction will vary as supply conditions change: such as opening or closing other nozzles,
hose line kinks, changes in pump settings, etc. Changes in spray pattern or flushing will also
affect nozzle reaction. The nozzle operator must always be prepared in the event of these
changes. Failure to restrain nozzle reaction can cause firefighter injury from loss of footing and/
or stream protection.
If nozzle gets out of control or away from operator, retreat from nozzle immediately. Do not
attempt to regain control of nozzle while flowing water. Injury from whipping can occur.

WARNING
Water is a conductor of electricity. Application of water on high voltage equipment can cause
injury or death by electrocution. The amount of current that may be carried back to the nozzle
will depend on the following factors:
• Voltage of the line or equipment
• Distance from the nozzle to the line or equipment
• Size of the stream
• Whether the stream is solid or broken
• Purity of the water1

WARNING
WARNING
WARNING
CAUTION
Improper use of foam can result in injury or damage to the environment. Follow foam
manufacturer’s instructions and fire service training to avoid:
• Using wrong type of foam on a fire. i.e. Class A foam on a Class B fire.
• Plunging foam into pools of burning liquid fires.
• Causing environmental damage.
• Directing stream at personnel.
There is a wide variety of foam concentrates. Each user is responsible for verifying that any
foam concentrate chosen to be used with this unit has been tested to assure that the foam
obtained is suitable for the purpose intended.
For Class B fires, lack of foam or interruption in the foam stream can cause a break in the foam
blanket and greatly increase the risk of injury or death. Assure that:
• Application rate is sufficient (see NFPA 11 or foam manufacturer’s recommendations).
• Enough concentrate is on hand to complete task (see NFPA for minimum duration
requirements).
• Foam logistics have been carefully planned. Allow for such things as:
o Storage of foam in a location not exposed to the hazard it protects.
o Personnel, equipment, and technique to deliver foam at a rapid enough rate.
o Removal of empty foam containers.
o Keeping clear path to deliver foam as hoses, other equipment, and vehicles are
deployed.
Water streams are capable of injury and damage. Do not direct water stream to cause injury or
damage to persons or property.

2.2 NOZZLE COUPLINGS
Many inlet couplings such as NH (National Hose) or NPSH (National Pipe Straight Hose) can be specified at time of order.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Nozzle must be properly connected. Mismatched or damaged threads may cause nozzle to leak
or uncouple under pressure and could cause injury.
Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion that can result in the inability
to unscrew the threads or complete loss of thread engagement over time. Per NFPA 1962
(1998 edition), if dissimilar metals are left coupled together an anti-corrosive lubricant should
be applied to the threads. Also the coupling should be disconnected and inspected at least
quarterly.

4.4 FLUSH CONTROL
Small debris passes though the debris screen and may get caught inside the
nozzle. This trapped material will cause poor stream quality, shortened reach,
and reduced flow. To remove small debris, the nozzle may be flushed as follows:
While still flowing water, rotate the selector ring counterclockwise (as viewed from
behind the nozzle) to the flush position. Rotate the selector ring out of flush to
continue normal operations. The nozzle operator must be prepared for a change
in nozzle reaction when going into or returning from flush.
WARNING
Large amounts or pieces of debris may be unflushable and can reduce the flow of the nozzle
resulting in an ineffective flow. In the event of a blockage, it may be necessary to retreat to a
safe area, uncouple the nozzle and remove debris.
5.0 NOZZLE CONTROLS
5.1 FLOW CONTROL
5.1.1
LEVER TYPE FLOW CONTROL
On models that use a lever type valve handle, the nozzle is shut
off when the handle is fully forward. The valve handle has 5
detented flow positions. These detent positions allow the nozzle
operator to regulate the flow of the nozzle depending on the need
or what can be safely and effectively handled. TFT recommends
the use of a pistol grip for easier handling. For additional stress
reduction, a hose rope or strap may also be used. This permits
more effective use and ease of advancement, while minimizing
strain and fatigue

5.1.2 TIP ONLY
Tip only nozzles have NO shut off valve within the nozzle and
MUST be used with a separate ball valve attached to the nozzle.
5.1.3
BALL SHUT OFF
A separate ball valve for use with Tip Only nozzles is shut off
when the valve handle is fully forward. Pulling back on the handle
opens the valve. Open valve slowly to avoid sudden changes
in nozzle reaction. Close valve slowly to prevent water hammer.
Note: In partially open positions a ball valve will cause turbulence
and adversely affect stream quality.

5.2 PATTERN CONTROL ADJUSTMENT
FLOW
OFF
ON
5.2.1 PATTERN CONTROL
TFT’s G-Force has full pattern control from straight stream
to wide fog. Turning the stream shaper clockwise (as seen
from the operating position behind the nozzle) moves the
shaper to the straight stream position. Turning the shaper
counterclockwise will result in an increasingly wider
pattern.
Since the stream trim point varies with flow, the stream
should be “trimmed” after changing the flow to obtain the
straightest and farthest reaching stream. To properly trim
the stream, first open the pattern to narrow fog. Then
close the stream to parallel to give maximum reach.
Note: Turning the shaper further forward will cause
stream crossover and reduce the effective reach of
the nozzle.

COUNTERCLOCKWISE
TACTILE INDICATOR
(MOVES WITH BUMPER)
5.2.2 SHAPER TACTILE INDICATOR
The G-Force has a tactile indicator on the stream shaper.
The tactile indicator allows the stream shaper position
(and fog angle) to be determined by feel rather then by
sight. The fog angle can be adjusted (see section 5.2.3)
so that a desired fog angle is achieved when the tactile
indicator in on top of the nozzle. The G-Force has an
optional detent to aid in returning to a known fog angle.
Note: The fog angle will change as flow and pressure
change (becoming wider with increased flow).
5.2.3 FOG ANGLE ADJUSTMENT
Typically the G-Force is factory set with the tactile indicator
in the top position for straight stream. The fog angle can
be adjusted while keeping the tactile indicator on top by
following the steps in figure 5.2.3. You will need a new
shaper label if you change the fog angle adjustment.
1) Remove or cut the shaper label.
2) Loosen the clamp ring
with a pin spanner.
5) Apply a new shaper label.
4) Tighten the clamp ring
with a pin spanner.
3) While keeping the tactile indicator
or lock out lever on top,
rotate the shaper guide
to obtain the desired fog angle.

6.0 USE WITH FOAM
The G-Force nozzle may be used with foam solutions. Refer to fire service training for the proper use of foam.
WARNING
WARNING
WARNING
For Class B fires, lack of foam or interruption in the foam stream can cause a break in the foam
blanket and greatly increase the risk of injury or death. Assure that: Application rate is sufficient
(see NFPA 11 or foam manufacturer’s recommendations); Enough concentrate is on hand to
complete task (see NFPA for minimum duration time requirements); Foam logistics have been
carefully planned. Allow for such things as: Storage of foam in a location not exposed to the
hazard it protects; Personnel, equipment and technique to deliver foam at a rapid enough rate;
Removal of empty foam containers; Clear path to deliver foam, as hoses and other equipment
and vehicles are deployed.
Improper use of foam can result in injury or damage to the environment. Follow foam
manufacturer’s instructions and fire service training to avoid: Using wrong type of foam on
a fire, i.e. Class A foam on a Class B fire; Plunging foam into pools of burning liquid fuels;
Causing environmental damage; Directing stream at personnel.
There is a wide variety of foam concentrates. Each user is responsible for verifying that any
foam concentrate chosen to be used with this unit has been tested to assure that the foam
obtained is suitable for the purpose intended.
6.1 FOAM ASPIRATING ATTACHMENTS
To increase the expansion ratio, G-Force Series MX Foamjet (model FJ-MX-G) multi-expansion attachment or LX Foamjet (model
FJ-LX-G) low expansion attachment may be used with G-Force nozzles. These foam tubes attach and detach quickly from the
nozzle. Note: As expansion ratio is increased, the reach of the nozzle will be decreased due to the greater amount of bubbles
in the stream and their ability to penetrate the air. Generally the reach with foam is approximately 10% less than with water only.
Actual results will vary based on brand of foam, hardness of water, temperature, etc. See Foamjet instruction manual for specific
information. See LIA-025 (MANUAL: Foam Attachments for TFT Nozzles).
7.0 USE OF G-FORCE NOZZLES
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL FIRE DEPARTMENT OR AGENCY TO DETERMINE PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES
AND SUITABILITY FOR AN INDIVIDUAL’S USE OF THIS EQUIPMENT.
Many factors contribute to the extinguishment of a fire. Among the most important is delivering water at a flow rate sufficient to
absorb heat faster than it is being generated. The flow rate depends largely on the pump discharge pressure and hose friction loss.
It can be calculated using a hydraulic equation such as:
PDP = NP+FL+DL+EL
For additional information on calculating specific hose layouts, consult
an appropriate fire service training manual, such as IFSTA, or A Guide to
Automatic Nozzles, or call TFT’s “Hydraulics Hotline” at 800-348-2686.
See www.tft.com for flow rates at various pump pressures.

PDP = Pump discharge pressure in PSI
NP = Nozzle pressure in PSI
FL = Hose friction loss in PSI
DL = Device loss in PSI
EL = Elevation loss in PSI
LIG-010 October 29, 2012 Rev02
8.0 FIELD INSPECTION
TFT’s G-Force is designed and manufactured to be damage resistant and require minimal maintenance. However, as the primary
fire fighting tool upon which your life depends, it should be treated accordingly.
Use with saltwater is permissible provided nozzle is thoroughly cleaned with fresh water after each use. The service life of the nozzle
may be shortened due to the effects of corrosion and is not covered under warranty.
WARNING
Nozzle must be inspected for proper operation and function according to the inspection
checklist on last page before each use. Any nozzle that fails inspection is dangerous to use and
must be repaired before using.
Performance tests shall be conducted on the G-Force nozzle after a repair, or anytime a problem is reported to verify operation in
accordance with TFT test procedures. Consult factory for the procedure that corresponds to the model and serial number of the
nozzle. Any equipment which fails the related test criteria should be removed from service immediately. Troubleshooting guides are
available with each test procedure or equipment can be returned to the factory for service and testing.
CAUTION
Any alterations to the nozzle and its markings could diminish safety and constitutes a misuse
of this product.
All Task Force Tip nozzles are factory lubricated with high quality silicone grease. This lubricant has excellent washout resistance
and long term performance. If your department has unusually hard or sandy water, the moving parts may be affected. Foam agents
and water additives contain soaps and chemicals that may break down the factory lubrication.
The moving parts of the nozzle should be checked on a regular basis for smooth and free operation, and signs of damage. IF THE
NOZZLE IS OPERATING CORRECTLY, THEN NO ADDITIONAL LUBRICATION IS NEEDED. Any nozzle that is not operating
correctly should be immediately removed from service and the problem corrected.
9.0 REPAIR
Factory service is available with repair time seldom exceeding one day in our facility. Factory-serviced nozzles are repaired by
experienced technicians to original specifications, fully wet tested, and promptly returned. Repair charges for non-warranty items
are minimal. Any returns should include a note as to the nature of the problem and whom to reach in case of questions.
Task Force Tips assumes no liability for damage to equipment or injury to personnel that is a result of user service.
Repair kits and repair parts are stocked for immediate shipment. Contact the factory or visit the web site at www.tft.com for parts
lists, exploded views, test procedures and trouble shooting guides.
10.0 COLOR CODED VALVE HANDLE AND PISTOL GRIP
The TFT G-FORCE with lever type valve handles are supplied with black valve handle covers and pistol grips. The handle covers
and pistol grips are available from TFT in various colors for those departments wishing to color code the nozzle to the discharge
controls. A colored handle cover set will be sent upon receipt of the warranty card by TFT. Your department’s name can also be
engraved on the covers (see warranty card for more information).
Handle covers are replaceable by removing the four screws that hold the handle covers in place. Use a 3/32” allen wrench when
replacing screws. Pistol grip is replaceable by following TFT instruction sheet LTT-108.
For standardization NFPA 1901 (A-4-9.3) recommends the following color code scheme:

13.0 INSPECTION CHECKLIST
Nozzle must be inspected before each use for proper operation and function according to this checklist. Check that:
1. There is no obvious damage such a missing broken or loose parts, damaged labels, etc.
2. Coupling is tight and leak free.
3. Valve handle moves freely though full range and shuts off flow.
4. Index ring moves smoothly to all positions including flush.
5. Nozzle flow is adequate as indicated by pump pressure and nozzle reaction.
6. Shaper turns freely and adjusts pattern through full range.
7. Shaper detent (if so equipped) operates smoothly and positively.
WARNING
Any nozzle failing any part of the inspection checklist is unsafe and must have the problem
corrected before use. Operating a nozzle that fails any of the above inspections is a misuse of
the equipment.
14.0 WARRANTY
Task Force Tips, Inc., 3701 Innovation Way, Valparaiso, Indiana 46383-9327 USA (“TFT”) warrants to the original purchaser of its
G-Force series nozzles (“equipment”), and to anyone to whom it is transferred, that the equipment shall be free from defects in
material and workmanship during the five (5) year period from the date of purchase.
TFT’s obligation under this warranty is specifically limited to replacing or repairing the equipment (or its parts) which are shown by
TFT’s examination to be in a defective condition attributable to TFT. To qualify for this limited warranty, the claimant must return the
equipment to TFT, at 3701 Innovation Way, Valparaiso, Indiana 46383-9327 USA, within a reasonable time after discovery of the
defect. TFT will examine the equipment. If TFT determines that there is a defect attributable to it, TFT will correct the problem within
a reasonable time. If the equipment is covered by this limited warranty, TFT will assume the expenses of repair.
If any defect attributable to TFT under this limited warranty cannot be reasonably cured by repair or replacement, TFT may elect to
refund the purchase price of the equipment, less reasonable depreciation, in complete discharge of its obligations under this limited
warranty. If TFT makes this election, claimant shall return the equipment to TFT free and clear of any liens and encumbrances.
This is a limited warranty. The original purchaser of the equipment, any person to whom it is transferred, and any person who is
an intended or unintended beneficiary of the equipment, shall not be entitled to recover from TFT any consequential or incidental
damages for injury to person and/or property resulting from any defective equipment manufactured or assembled by TFT. It is agreed
and understood that the price stated for the equipment is in part consideration for limiting TFT’s liability. Some states do not allow the
exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above may not apply to you.
TFT shall have no obligation under this limited warranty if the equipment is, or has been, misused or neglected (including failure to
provide reasonable maintenance) or if there have been accidents to the equipment or if it has been repaired or altered by someone
else.
THIS IS A LIMITED EXPRESS WARRANTY ONLY. TFT EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO THE EQUIPMENT ALL
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
THERE IS NO WARRANTY OF ANY NATURE MADE BY TFT BEYOND THAT STATED IN THIS DOCUMENT.
This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
