Assembly of a Harper Broom

Harper Brooms are designed to be very durable and powerful and can be used for a wide range of jobs. Whether you're cleaning up sawdust or moving wet debris, the unique design of these brooms will give you the versatility and strength you need. These brooms are unique in the fact that they are constructed with a steel handle brace and a metal bolt-on handle tip that reduces breakage and increases leverage.

Tools Needed
Harper Bolt Assembly

The tools and parts needed to assemble the Harper broom are:
Broom Handle
Broom Head
Crescent Wrench
Box-end Wrenches
Socket Wrench
Attachment Bolts & Screws
Support Braces

1. Using the 1 ½ inch bolt, begin your
    assembly by attaching the broom handle
    to the broom head using one of the two
    holes on the top of the broom head. Finger
    tighten. (The other hole is so you can
    reverse the broom head at a later date
    and get more wear out of the broom.)

Harper Assembly Fully Tighten Bolts

2. Attach the two steel braces to the broom
    head using the 7/16th inch wood screws.
    Tighten half way using the 7/16th inch
    wrench or socket (do not fully tighten
    at this point).

3. Align the two curved ends of the braces
    around the broom handle and install the
    bolts and self-locking nuts (again, tighten
    as much as possible with fingers).

Fully tighten the ½ inch bolt into the broom head using the ½ inch wrench or socket.

Tighten the steel brace wood screws on the broom head until almost completely tight.

Fully tighten the bolts and self-locking nuts around the broom handle, alternating from one side to the other (you may have to wiggle the braces slightly to keep the holes aligned).

Harper Assembly Completely Tighten Brace  

4. Completely tighten the steel brace
    with wood screws.
Your Harper broom is now ready to use!
