English term or phrase: Flip up lever
Luxtec Surgical Loupes are mounted on a specially designed hinge, permitting the telescopes to be
flipped up out of view when not required (Figure 9).
Figure 9
To avoid touching the non-sterile loupes, a sterilizable loupe flip lever is provided with each pair of
loupes (spares are also available). When magnification is required again, the loupes may be returned
to their original preset working angle. The loupe flip lever is fitted by pushing onto the loupe bar
(Figure 10) and removed by twisting off.
Figure 10
Over a period of time the hinge tension may slacken slightly and require adjustment. Using the
enclosed Phillips screwdriver, adjust the hinge screw to the required tension as shown in Figure 11.
