PoleClinometer®: Shrink It!
Want some tips on heat-shrinking that protective sleeve over your PoleClinometer sticker? You’re in the right place. Here’s a rough cut video showing how to do it with a basic disposable lighter.
First, follow the rest of the installation instructions ’til you get to the “PROTECT” step. When you’re ready to heat-shrink that sleeve in place, watch this…
If you have an 18mm pole shaft, you should have no trouble doing this with just a lighter. With a smaller pole shaft, it can still be done, but it’s a little trickier, especially with the 14mm (shown in the video). A heat gun makes things super easy with any size pole shaft.
If you find you can’t get the sleeve to snug down sufficiently using a lighter, seek out a friend or neighbor with a heat gun, use it on a low setting, and it’ll tighten right up in no time!
