Directions for Installation and Use

Stainless Steel Needle Recapper (model #1012)

Select an area that is flat and relatively smooth for installing needle recapper. Recapper should be positioned where syringe cannot be bumped inadvertently. Clean and dry the area. Remove protective tape backing and press base firmly onto selected area.

Attach needle with cover onto syringe but do not tighten excessively due to risk of stripping plastic needle threads. Firmly insert attached needle cover into opening of recapper and twist clockwise approximately one turn. Remove syringe with needle from secured needle cover by pulling away from device. Syringe with needle can be stored in device for subsequent use by inserting syringe with needle straight into needle cover. To remove, twist syringe with cover one or more turns counterclockwise and pull syringe with attached cover out of recapper. Covered needle can now be removed from syringe and disposed of safely. Flow-through design of needle recapper encourages routine spray disinfection.

Solo-Cap II™ Needle Recapper (model #1013)

To attach Solo-Cap II™ Needle Recapper to plastic set-up tray, first twist threaded cylinder counterclockwise to full extent. Note: to simplify installation and removal, the recapper has been designed so that the cylinder will not separate from the clip. Attach clip portion over edge of tray completely and twist cylinder clockwise firmly. To remove device from tray for autoclaving or repositioning, twist cylinder counterclockwise to full extent and slip recapper off of edge.
