How do you install a grid plate?

The grid plates we carry all come with instructions. For safe installation, install grid plate when the steam has been shut off and the press is cold. First, detach the springs from the worn grid plate and remove the grid plate from the head of the machine. Next, Clean the rust off the head of the machine, using a soft wire brush or a hot head mitt. Then, to install the new grid plate, fit the grid plate onto the press head. Place springs over the top and hook springs into the eyelets to secure the grid plate. After, bring the head down and secure it by locking it. Push and bend the edges of the grid plate around the head. This will ensure a tight fit and will eliminate steam escaping from the edge of the head.
