    Hello people,

    I am unsure how to mount the racquet on my epsilon machine which with research have found to be really equivalent to an Win II pro Eagnas 700le and with two extra mounting points really an Ektelon H.

    Anyhow I have many retainers but am unsure of the exact procedure of mounting the racquet correctly and safely. Are the retainers meant to be on both above and below the grommets or just below? Are they meant to be touching the frame securely so they dont move once mounted.

    here are first images of my epsilon, then what i believe are the same underlying machines with a few tweaks.

    Choose thickest retainer that fits under grommets without actually touching grommets. One side retainer may be of different thickness than the other, depending on racquet construction. After loosely clamping frame, tighten clamps sideways until retainers are no longer loose against racquet. The retainer is meant to distribute compressive forces on racquet as main strings are tightened.

    Good luck
