How to Set Up Your Grandfather Clock

Watch the Video :

Follow the Step-by-Step Instructions :

STEP 1: Remove Contents

To be removed in this order:
A) Top box containing Instruction Manual (most models)
B) A long cardboard box containing the pendulum
C) Your new Clock
D) White styrofoam box containing Door Key (some models), Crank, and Weights

For more detailed instructions, please refer to the Instruction Manual.

Before you set up and operate your new clock, read and follow the safety and warning instructions in the Instruction Manual.

STEP 2: Level Your Clock

Located on the bottom of the base near each corner are levelers that adjust up and down for maximum stability and proper alignment. Position your clock in the desired area of the room and ensure that your clock is stable and does not tip over.

STEP 3: Remove Chime Rod Packaging

Unlock and open the front door of the clock. Locate the cardboard sleeve that holds the chime rod in place. To remove, gently pull straight down at points A and B.

STEP 4: Remove Movement Packaging

Side access panels may be held in place with a clip located on the inside of the clock. Turn the clip to release the side access panel.

To remove the side access panel, lift the panel up and push it in towards the inside of the clock and completely separate the panel from the clock frame. Tip the panel at a slight angle and pull it out through the side access frame opening.

Through the side access opening, gently remove the sponge foam pads from around the chime hammers.

STEP 5: Do Not Remove Styrofoam Blocks

The white styrofoam clocks will drop and loosen during normal operation. After a period of 8 hours, the blocks will have loosened and may be easily removed.

Removing the white styrofoam clocks while they are held tight by the cables and pulleys can cause the cables to overlap and bind the movement.

STEP 6: Hang the Pendulum

Carefully unpack the pendulum. Hook the pendulum in the slot as shown.

STEP 7: Hang the Weights

Be sure the hook on top of each weight is tight by turning the hook clockwise. Hang each weight on the pulley in the proper position as shown. Facing the clock, each weight is marked on the bottom Left, Center, or Right.

STEP 8: Set the Time

Move ONLY the minute hand counter-clockwise until the correct time is set. Do NOT move the hour hand to set the time.

STEP 9: Start the Clock

Pull the pendulum to the far left and release.

STEP 10: Regulate the Time

If the clock runs too slow (loses time each day), turn the adjustment nut to the right.

If the clock runs too fast (gains time each day), turn the adjustment nut to the left.

Note: One complete turn equals approximately 1/2 minute per day.
