Each clock has been calibrated, tested and is ready for use. DO NOT MOVE THE CLOCK HANDS WITH YOUR FINGERS! You may damage the movement by doing so. Instead, use the dial in the back of the clock movement to set the time on the clock.
If the clock is out of alignment, follow these steps to re-calibrate the minute and hour hands:
Unscrew the brass cap nut counter-clockwise with your fingers
Remove the minute hand
Remove the hour hand by pulling it out straight from the shaft
Temporarily place the minute hand over the shaft, rotate the hand clockwise until it is pointing at the “12” position on the clock
Lift the hand off
Choose any number on your dial (9:00) to align the hour hand with. Very carefully press the hour hand straight down onto the tapered, friction-fit hour shaft until the hand is firmly in place. *Note: In the event that the hour hand is not perfectly aligned with the number on the dial that you have chose, DO NOT try to rotate the hand hub on the tapered shaft. Instead, lift the hand straight off and re-align.)
