These instructions describe how to fit the pieces to just one end of your cartridge.
  1. Insert the cartridge through the endfitting, so that the outer thread is at the outermost end.
  2. Place 2 split collets around the neck of the cartridge as shown in the figure on the left.
  3. Place the guard column cartridge inside the space at the end of the collets.
  4. Push the endfitting up over the assembled guard column cartridge.
  5. Screw the end cap over the endfitting. Tighten it finger-tight.
  6. When you install your combined column and guard column into the flow path of your LC, tighten the endfittings leak-tight using a wrench.
