Step 1: Cut pipe end square, deburr and clean. Position swaging tool to mark pipe as shown. Ensure that pin is against end of pipe. Mark pipe through marking slot.
Step 2: Make a second mark at the end of the swaging tool. This mark will be used to inspect position of the coupling after it has been crimped. Note: For easier assembly, use a white marker (fine paint stick or white out pen) to make marks on pipe.
Step 3: Slide coupling on the end of the pipe to first marking.
Step 4: Insert end of other pipe into coupling so the ends of pipe touch inside of the coupling. The Markings should be visible as shown.
Step 5: Slide upper head assembly over coupling. Slide power unit with attached lower head assembly into upper head assembly. To crimp, hydraulic pressure from the power unit extends the cylinder which squeezes the upper and lower head assemblies together. This action mechanically swages the coupling to the pipe. The crimp is complete when the head bottoms out and the gap closes.
Step 6: Finally, Inspect the position of the coupling. The Inspection marks must be fully visible outside the coupling. The Pyplok connection is complete.
