Using a 9/64” Allen Wrench start by removing the two screws that hold the original missed primer chute ramp (ski jump) to the platform. This may be easier done with the platform in the raised/handle down position. Lower the platform after you have removed the Primer chute ramp.

The new Primer Catcher will mount to the left side bolt hole of the original chute location.

Lower the Platform if you raised it before and then place the new Primer Catcher in the position shown above, the back corner will sit just above the stock spent primer cup bracket.

Insert the new supplied screw and using a 3/32” Allen tighten the screw to secure the new Primer Catcher to the platform. It might be a tight fit but the screw and allen should just clear the stock spent primer cup bracket.

Now just screw on the Primer Catch Reservoir and you’ll never have to worry about another live primer jumping off onto the floor again.

WARNING - While the reservoir will hold quite a few primers it is recommended for safety reasons that you do not let it fill up completely before emptying it. Primers can explode if subject to impact so you should never let more than one or two primers accumulate in the bottle at any one time. This system was not designed to be used to empty the entire primer system. Any misuse of this upgrade may result in serious physical injury. Please follow all safety precautions while dealing with or handling live primers.
