Carefully inspect reusable skull pins before each use. To maintain proper fixation, pins should be equal length. Damaged (dull, bent, etc.) pins should be replaced. It is recommended that spare pins always be kept available. Avoid the areas of the frontal sinus, temporal fossa, major blood vessels, nerves, previously restored or abnormally thin bone. Adjusting the pin carriers will influence the total force applied to the patient. After every third adjustment made to the pin carrier, verify the total force applied to the patient by looking at the force gauge on the Torque Screw. The total force may be higher or lower than its initial value. DO NOT attempt to exceed the fourth graduation when adjusting a pin carrier. Before fully tightening, always be certain that the sunburst teeth of the Swivel Adaptor and the Transitional Member fittings are the same size and mesh properly. Failure to do so may damage fittings. Do not steam sterilize. Plastic components may be damaged by the heat.
