4 ADJUST HOT LIMIT STOP

By restricting HANDLE rotation and limiting the amount of hot water allowed to mix with the cold, the HOT LIMIT SAFETY

STOP (1) reduces risk of accidental scalding. To set the maximum hot water temperature of your faucet, all you need to do

is adjust the setting on the HOT LIMIT SAFETY STOP (1).

Turn CARTRIDGE STEM (2) to the OFF position (coldest setting) before making adjustment to HOT LIMIT STOP (1). Use a

flat blade screwdriver to pry free the HOT LIMIT SAFETY STOP (1). Pull forward and rotate counterclockwise one number to limit hot water temperature. Use ARROW (3) on CARTRIDGE (4) and NUMBERS (5) on HOT LIMIT STOP (1) for indication.
