Inserting Pipette into Pipette Holder

1) Disassemble the O-ring compression subassembly from the pipette support subassembly.

2) Insert the pipette through the support subassembly, and through the O-ring.

3) Lightly tighten the outside nut to clamp the pipette without crushing it.

4) Begin screwing the O-ring compression subassembly into the pipette support subassembly. See the two figures below showing the uncompressed O-ring.
