    1. You will need to purchase a T-20 torx screwdriver to start
    2. Carefully loosen the nut from the back of the frame. The bolt will keep itself locked into place if you hold it there with your finger.
    3. The nut is aluminum and the bolt is plastic.
    4. Remove both pieces and set aside.

    Installing:
    1. Put torx nut in first!
    2. Then begin to screw in bolt side with your fingers so that it threads easy. (Dont try to put the bolt in first, you WILL cross thread it!)
    3. Slowly spin the bolt till in threads into the torx nut, after a few turns push it into place, you will notice that the bolt will seat itself into the jaw and stop turning as it will seat into a hex head. Now loosely tighten the nut with your T-20, just make it snug....

    T-20 is the correct torx size? You learn something new every day! I've disassembled jaws hundreds of times using a T-15 head, without any problems. My set of Torx only goes up to T-15 and it seemed like a perfect fit.
