We are going to add the laser marked instruction of CROSSLOC™ on the nut.
CROSSLOC™ is very easy to lock and unlock. It’s just tightening cap screws to lock and loosening cap screws to unlock. However, we want people to understand this system better to avoid possible failure and be safer on site.
We will add these instruction in the several languages in the scanned page of the QR codes on the housing as well.

There are two nuts for this locking system and the inside nut connects with the inner ring and outside nut connects with the adapter sleeve. These two nuts are connected with four (six) cap screws and the outside nut with adapter sleeve is pulled and pushed by cap screws to lock and unlock. The adapter sleeve needs to be pulled to lock and we use the left-hand cap screws to turn clockwise to pull and turn counterclockwise to push. When you tighten the cap screws, the gap between two nuts gets bigger and the adapter sleeve is moving towards the outside. When you loosen the cap screws, the gap will be smaller and the adapter sleeve is moving towards the inside. The outside nut should move parallel to the inside nut to avoid the cap screws twisting and getting damaged. This is why the cap screws are tightened in a star pattern and repeated. You may need to repeat this several times to tighten all the cap screws perfectly, this is a very standard way as seen with automobile wheels.
When you want to unlock CROSSLOC™, loosening and turning counterclockwise is needed. They are the same left rotation but turning counterclockwise does not loosen. Loosen all cap screws to be freed first. Then you need to push the outside nut to release the adapter sleeve from the inner ring. Turn the cap screws counterclockwise in a star pattern and repeat until dismounted. It’s same as locking and the outside nut should move parallelly.
The outside nut should move parallel to the inside nut.
