Adjusting the Run Time of the S960171AA Metering Tap Cartridge

The run time of the Armitage Shanks Avon tap models is about 5 to 15 seconds. If you desire a longer run time, remove the handle and use the “run time adjustment key” which was provided with the tap unit.
– Turning the key clockwise will increase the run time.
– Turning it the opposite direction will shorten the run time.

Restore the handle and check if run time is sufficient.

Lock the handle in position using the grub screw and Allen key.
