I had the same problem, but i found an answer.
have a friend with 2 good feet help you with this.
Turn the crutch upside down and place armrest on the ground.
Stand on the outside edges of the armrest and pull crutch upward. The armrest is not glued to the rest of the unit. It's just a snug fit. Once the armrest is removed, the hand piece can be removed.
Now comes the struggle to remove the damaged rubber hand grip, and put the new one on, took me about 5 minutes to do this step.
Then reverse what you've done, put the hand grip back on the crutch, put the armrest back on, turn the crutch upside down, and push the armrest back into place.

Hope this helps!

Have a set of crutches, we need t adjust where you put your hands, we can see they're adjustable but can't figure it out. Already adjuted to her heght, that was easy.

Whether yours are the classic wooden crutches or the light weight aluminum model. The hand holder has a long screw that goes thru each side of the crutch and thru the hand piece. Loosening that screw, remove it and placing the handle where you want it (needs to match up with other holes), should do the trick. Reinstall the screw and that's it.

Hope this helped you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How do you get fuse box off bar to remove battery

brasssyslv, There are three bolts holding the bar in place. Two in front and one in the back. To get at the back bolt, remove the plastic triangle shaped cover by pulling it straight up. When you remove these bolts, grab the bar and turn it 90 degrees either way and pull it straight out. Now the only thing holding the fuse box in is either a 10mm bolt or a plastic push pin. Remove it and place the box aside while you change the battery. Good luck with this.

How do I assemble the bar and chain on my 1.5hp chain saw MS1415?

Start by removing the bar nut/nuts, and remove the side cover, if the chainbrake is in the cover make sure this is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, before removing the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fulley in toward the rear of the saw ( it may be in the crankcse, or in the side cover ) now assemble the guide bar onto the bar bolt/bolts, loop the cutter chain over the sprocket,and into around the tip of the guide bar, and into the bar rails, make sure the sharp end of the cutters on the top of the guide bar are facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) now align the adjuster hole in the bar with the adjuster pawl on the machine, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure this lines up with the adjuster hole in the bar, assemble the bar nut/nuts finger tight, adjust the chain so as it touches all the way around the guide bar ( not sagging on the bottom of the bar ) with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is free and sitting in the sprocket correctly, re adjust the chain if required, now lift the nose of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts

How do I replace a broken chain bar locating pin/bolt on a McCulloch 540e petrol chainsaw?

The bar bolt is a stepped stun, it is screwed into the bar pad, you will have to grap it with a suitable pair of grips and undo it like a srew ( right hand thread, counter clockwise as you look at it ) you can then replace it with a new stud.

How do i put a chain back on a chainsaw?

Locate the bolts on the bar, down close to the engine. Loosen them. locate the chain tensioning adjustment, again, close to the engine, but on the other side. Loosen it also. Place your chain on the bar and on the sprocket. Tighten the bolts enough to take the slack out of the bar, but not so much that you cannot use the adjustment tensioning screw. Tighten up on the tension adjustment until the tension on the chain is right, and then tighten the bolts.

One screw from seat to tank,trying to change seat, turns and turns without coming up, the other doesnt turn at all and is starting to strip head. I tried putting pressure under screw to give it something...

Here's an idea----If the hinge piece is plastic, cut it away to expose a bit of the bolt and use vise grips and pull. Maybe put a thin metal plate next to the bolt so you can pry up on the vise grip. Or maybe you can get a grip on the hinge itself with the vise grips. The insert is going to be plastic, so if you can get a grip this should work. Or you might try drilling a small hole in the hinge piece very close to the bolt so you can get some super glue down in there to lock the insert is place. Hmmmm, this might be a bad idea unless you have a hypodermic needle and bolt is not plastic. good luck!

How do i fold this puschair up & how does it fold down? Can this done by one person? Thnk you for any help.

The Tracker is designed to be folded and unfolded easily, by one person.

To unfold: If your Tracker has an adjustable handle, ensure that it is in one of the middle positions. On the central twist grip, push in the red button and turn the grip in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. The pushchair should now begin to open. Placing your hand on the side moulding, pull on the handle until the primary locks on both the left and right hand sides engage with a click. The secondary lock should automatically engage.

To fold: First of all, make sure that the front wheels have been locked into fixed, non-steering mode. Also, ensure that the adjustable handle is in one of the middle positions. Press the red button on the twist grip and simultaneously turn it in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. At this point, the chair should start to close. Next, look for the secondary locking device. This plastic tab should be situated just below the handle grip on the left-hand side. Pull it upwards, whilst tilting the chassis forwards and continuing the folding action until it is fully closed. Align the front wheel with your foot, if necessary, and fold down the adjustable handle to store the chassis.
