WHEN SHOULD I USE THE ROTO LOCK? The roto lock on latch-it products are there for heavier items such as possibly attaching blue tooth speakers with the Rangefinder Straps to golf carts and you don’t want the speakers to fly out. The roto lock shouldn’t need to be locked for rangefinders even in motion as they are not that heavy and the dynamic motion lock will keep it in place.
HOW DO I USE THE ROTO LOCK? The roto lock is the exterior wheel on Latch-It products and rotates 180 degrees between the locked and unlocked positions. You will hear and feel a click when the roto lock has successfully come into a locked or unlocked position. When the orange indicator is fully visible in the clear window of the roto lock, the roto lock is in the locked position. To unlock, turn counter clockwise through to detents (clicks) 180 degrees to the unlocked position. IMPORTANT: Do not try and detatch a product with the the roto lock in any other position than the unlocked position.
I’M HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING MY GEAR DETACHED FROM THE LATCH-IT RECIEVERS, WHAT SHOULD I DO? The dongles / fobs that are attached to your gear must be pulled straight out. If gear is being pulled out at an angle, the interior mostion sensing dynamic lock is being engaged. Also, be sure the exterior wheel of the roto lock is securely in the unlocked position. If the roto lock is able to spin or the orange stripe is showing then the roto lock is not unlocked and will make removal of product impossible or very difficult if it is in between locked and unlocked positions (wheel spins freely).
THE VELCRO STRAPS ARE TOO LONG TO WRAP AROUND SOME GOLF CARTS, WHAT CAN I DO? The solution here is rather easy, use half of the looped pile for half of the hooked portion of each side of the Velcro strap. This will mean the hook portion will hang halfway off on both and share the looped portion. There is ample hook and loop to keep the receivers secure on smaller poles, go ahead, test it out and see for yourself. Be sure that you are happy with your secure strapping work.
I CAN’T OPERATE THE ROTO LOCK ON THE BAG LATCH-IT ON MY GOLF BAG WITHOUT LOOSENING FROM THE BAG, WHAT SHOULD I DO? The threaded plug that tightens down to golf bags has a slight barb to it so that once the plug gets close to tight that the barb should keep the plug from untightening and loosening on the bag. It is important to not overtighten the plug to the bag as this can cause the roto lock to strip and then no longer work properly. If operating the roto lock is still problematic, remove the threaded plug from the U shaped bag clamp and turn the roto lock back and forth making sure to be clicking in and out of both the locked and unlocked detents which will then soften the detents for easier use.
I LIKE HOW THE RANGEFINDER AND PHONE LATCH-IT’S STAY IN PLACE, IS IT INTENTIONAL THAT I CAN USE FORCE AND ROTATE THEM TO A NEW ORIENTATION? Please do not rotate your Rangefinder and Phone Latch-It’s when in the receiver as this will wear down the teeth that keep the units in their positions without spinning.
