3. Insert an Allen wrench into the hole in the center of the knob and give it about three turns counterclockwise to loosen the set screw.

* Turning it counterclockwise allows the set screw to rise a little.

4. Align the knob with the axis in the center and turn it clockwise to screw it down.

* After screwing it down to some extent, check the knob for looseness by holding it to move up and down.

5. Hand-hold the knob and fasten the set screw securely.

In Closing

After fastening the set screw, turn the knob to ensure that the axis works properly and the knob has no looseness.

* If the knob feels too tight to turn, go back to the procedure 4 and turn back the knob counterclockwise lightly and then fasten the set screw again.
