One trick, if you do not want your part-circle to spray everything that it should not, is to push-up the inner mechanism (from the bottom inlet) BEFORE installing the head. Use the trip collars that way, to approximate your desired coverage arc.
Now it's necessary to know where that will be, when the ___-Paw is actually installed. The cover rotates, so marking that won't do. Instead put some tape on the outside rim of the sprinkler, maybe about in the middle of the eastblished coverage arc setting, to avoid confusion later on.
There is really no way to avoid having to finish setting the arc & diffuser pin with the sprinkler actually running.
Hope that answers your question. (It's usually better to just throw the thing in & take your chances LOL)
