Shed Extenders Installation Instructions

 

Don't worry if the wooden clips on your new loom don't seem to be staying in place. If you purchased a loom in the spring of 2015 or later, you may have slightly different wooden clips than pictured in some of our instructions or promotional materials. You simply need to unscrew the white plastic screws slightly, turn the screws to the back of the clip and then tighten them. Click here to see a post covering this.

How to switch plastic clips for wooden ones: If your loom came with plastic clips and you want to switch to the newer wooden clips. This is how to install the new clips: Requires flat nose pliers to remove bushing from inside copper side bars so you can slip the clip on the loom will it will remain permanently.

Separate the top and the bottom parts of the loom (just slide the top part off) and then remove the bushings from inside the copper side bar (the silver-colored piece that is inserted into the copper) with a pair of flat nose pliers (note: some generations of looms will not have these bushings). Then you can slip the wooden clip onto the bar. Replace the bushing and place the top part of the loom back onto the bottom part.
