Using the Coupler

We are having some trouble with attaching the coupler to the two shafts. For some reason they keep falling apart and detaching. We were wondering if their was some way to secure the shafts and the coupler. Thanks!

Please reply fast. Thanks!

Hi DVM,

Unfortunately the shaft coupler is not designed to retain the shaft (keep it from sliding out). One way to do this is to use shaft collars (P/N 276-2010 or P/N 276-3891). These act as movable “bumps” on the shaft that will keep it from sliding through bearings and metal. A photo of a shaft retained with shaft collars is attach

Good luck at your competition!
