Wand - AttachingTo attach the Wand apply some moderate downward pressure on the Wand (In the direc- tion of the trigger) while simultaneously twisting the wand a 1/4 of a turn doclcwise. It may hefo if you set the gun verticaly on a flat surface witn the wand pointing upwards. The two tabs on the end of the Wana must slide all the way in before the Wand will twist and lode If this does not work rema/e the o-rina from the end of the wand and attach it without tne o-rina. If the wand attaches, you will need to replace tne o-ring. Contact us at customerservice@huskypowerwasher. com or order a replacement diredly online at www.huskypowerwasher.com.

Apply some moderate downward pressure on the Wand (In the direc- tion of the trigger) while simultaneously twisting the wand a 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise. (It mcy help if you set the gun vertically on a flat surtoce with the Wand pointing upwards). For additional assistance you can email us at custo merservice@huskypowerwasher.com.
Wand - Gray collar won't hjrn/won't adjust to low/ high pressureTo turn the gray collar, hold the Wand hori- zontally in both hands. Hold the collar firmly in one hand and the shaft of the Wand in the other hand. It works best if you grab the shaft by the "beehive" shaped portion at the bottom of the Wand. Sometimes the gray collar gets tightened down too far and needs some extra force to move it. For additional assistance you can email us at customerservice@huskypo werwasher.com.
