INSTRUCTIONS FOR GRIFO CAPPER.

Place an empty bottle on the platform and adjust the height so that you have 1/2″ to 1″ between the bottle and the capping bell. There is a lock-down screw. Lightly pull down the capping arm to be sure the bottle is directly under the bell. Do not crush the bottle. Swing the guide arm into position that so you can quickly position a bottle directly under the bell. Remove the empty bottle. Lightly lube inside the bell (where the caps go) with keg lube. Place a cap on the magnet inside the bell. Place a filled bottle on the platform as guided by the holding arm. Pull down the capping arm. Voila! If eventually you get a hung bottle, WITH A GLOVE gently wobble it to remove and re lubricate inside the capping bell.

 

After you have capped a few bottles, mark your height settings with a Sharpie so that if you have to make adjustment for a different height bottle you can go back to them in a few seconds!
