Removing Baynote Protective Cap
It works much like a medicine bottle cap and helps t insure the protective cap stays assembled. It is safe and vandal resistant whe optional screw in installed. All models are designated with model number stamped in rubber cover for easy identification.
Select and Install Nozzle
Back out nozzle retaining screw. Slip nozzle into hole and replace screw. Make sure screw is driven in enough to clear surrounding plastic, or bayonet cap will not twist on. For heads at the bottom of slopes, an ADV dish can be installed to reduce run off when the system is off.
Full Circle Adjustment
For FULL CIRCLE; leave black side up. No need to set collars.
Part Circle Adjustment
- Remove Click-Set Disk
- And manually turn sprinkler unitil nozzle points to the center of the desired watering area.
- Place Click-Set Disk in Position Gray Side Up

Memory Ring Protection
If sprinkler is manually turned past the set pattern, the memory ring will pop temporarily out of position while the sprinkler rotates around to its original part circle pattern. If the memory ring gets out of position while you are setting the pattern, remove the dish and rotate the ring with your fingers until the tab clicks into place.
Ratcheting piston allows for quick turret adjustment for part-circle application-wet or dry. The ratcheting piston will not break during adjustment.
Check With Water On
Check part circle patterns. Turn diffuser screw clockwise to diffuse spray as needed. Make sure top of diffuser screw is below surrounding plastic.
