|English term or phrase: idler adjust|
|roller shade assembling|
"Slide Idler Adjust bracket onto Idler Bearing Assembly so that “U” bend is underneath the screw and end of screw is aligned with edge of Idler Adjust".
...could it be that the second time idler adjust is mentioned in the sentence it always refer to the bracket?
(from the picture it is unclear what piece is the idler adjust, or even the bracket. Also, the closest thing to a "U" bend in the picture might be a U groove, could they be the same thing?)
|English translation:See comment below...|
From the available clues, I would say that there is a part called 'idler adjust', and a part called 'bracket for idler adjust' [= idler adjust bracket!] --- so I think you are talking about 2 different things in your sentence.
I would think it very likely that the 'U-bend' IS in fact referring to the U-groove you mention; as I said before, they seem to have a rather curious way of expressing themselves, and I would hardly have expected to find 'U-bend' here. It is likely that the 'idler adjust is some kind of plate with a round hole for the pin on the end of the roller, and that this plate is arranged so it can slide up and down on its bracket, allowing the rotating roller pin to move within the U-shaped slot or groove, the screw being used to adjut the height of the plate, and hence, the height of the 'idle' [= not driven] end of the roller.
That's about as much as my crystal ball can glean from the slim information available --- send me the diagram if you want more analysis...
