Connecting Rod

Step 2: Assemble Lysol Bracket

Attach one MG995 servo to the Lysol Servo Bracket using four M3 x16mm bolts and four M3 nuts.

Attach one M2 x6mm bolt to the Lysol Servo Bracket using one M2 nut.

Attach the SG90 gear adapter to the Lysol Servo Bracket using four M1.2 x5mm Phillips Head Micro Screws.

Attach the round gear adaptor to the MGS995 Servo using the included screw.

Attach the one end of the connecting rod to the round gear adaptor using one M1.2 x5mm Phillips Head Micro Screw.

Place the plunger into the slot in the Lysol Servo Bracket and attach it to the other end of the connecting rod using one M1.2 x5mm Phillips Head Micro Screw.

Step 3: Mount SG90 Servo

Attach the SG90 servo with the wires facing the back to the enclosure using two M2 x10mm Hex Socket Flat Head Countersunk Bolts and two M2 Nuts.

Step 4: Attach Lysol Servo Bracket to SG90 Servo

Pass the wire for the MG995 Metal Gear Servo that is attached to the Lysol Servo Bracket through the bottom front hole in the wall dividing the enclosure.

Attach Lysol Servo Bracket to SG90 Servo using the included screw.

Step 5: Load Lysol Into Holder and And Attach to Lysol Servo Bracket

Place the Lysol can into the Lysol Can Holder.

Attach the Lysol Can Holder to the Lysol Servo Bracket using four M1.2 x5mm Phillips Head Micro Screws.

Step 6: Attach Arm to Servo Gear

Attach the arm to the round MG995 gear adapter using four M1.2 x5mm Phillips Head Micro Screws.

Attach the round gear adapter with the arm attached to the MGS995 servo.

Step 7: Mount MG995 in Left Side of Enclosure

Mount the MG995 servo with the arm attached to the enclosure using four M3 x16mm Hex Socket Flat Head Countersunk Bolts and four M3 Nuts.
