Maintaining or Updating the Brace and Band

General maintenance check-up for Band.

Check to make sure that the band under the screw heads on the back bar and that the band is tight. Make sure the base supporting the tank is secure before adjusting the band. (See Securing the Base) To tighten the band, loosen the hex head screws enough to give the band some sliding room. Turn the worm screw on the band at the back of the frame, until the band is tight. Make sure the band is under the lip of the hex head screws, and tighten them over the band.
