To Start you will be removing the Stock Spent Primer Cup Bracket from the platform. Using a 3/32 Allen Wrench remove the two screws that hold the Spent Primer Cup Bracket to the platform. This is easier done with the platform in the raised/handle down position.

Then using the new supplied screws install the new Bracket and Funnel in the Position shown above. The round end of the triangle bracket should face forward. Start one screw in the first hole but do not tighten it until you get the second screw started. This will help to align them without cross threading either of them.

Next attach one end of the Hose to the end of the Funnel, the other end will be attached to a suitable container on the floor. Soda Bottles are the easiest container to use (as they are large enough that they rarely have to be emptied) so I am including a pre-drilled soda bottle cap and bottom hose fitting. If you do not want to use a soda bottle the lower fitting can be used with any container by just drilling a 13/32 hole in the top of it.

You will probably have to trim the hose to length depending on the height of your bench, route of the hose, and location of your container, when trimming the hose make sure you take into account the height of the bottle or container that you have selected, also make sure the hose has a little slack so it doesn't bind as the platform is raised and lowered.

If using a soda bottle double check that the supplied cap fits your bottle before continuing. Insert the bottom hose fitting (the smaller of the two fittings) through the bottom of the cap, it might be a tight fit and inserting it at an angle and then snapping it in is usually the easiest method here.

While holding the fitting in with your thumb with one hand attach the hose to the top of the fitting by squeezing the hose near the end and while pressing it on at an angle, give the hose a slight twist and it should pop right on. Be sure you measured your hose and trimmed it to the correct length for your setup before starting this step. Once again don’t forget to account for the height of the container that you have selected.

Secure the hose to the fitting with the zip tie and trim off the excess with a pair of snips.

Then just screw the cap on to your soda bottle (not supplied) and enjoy some loading, you should now never have to pick spent primers off the bench or floor again.

Enjoy, you should now never have to pick spent primers off the bench or floor again. If you have any questions, comments, or problems please contact me at stevethone@comcast.net
