Key Tip (U.S.A.) Fitting Handpieces
What is an Interchangeable Handpiece?
Foredom’s Quick Disconnect or “QD” feature makes it fast and easy to interchange handpieces to any flexible shaft.
QD refers to the back portion of Foredom’s extensive selection of “QD” type handpieces.
Inside the QD is a round connector with a slot that accepts the “keyed tip” on the end of the flexible shaft.
Since the QD’s are the same on all handpieces of this type, they are interchangeable and can be attached or removed with ease.
When attaching a handpiece, be sure that the keyed tip of the flexible shaft is properly lined up with
the slot in the back end by looking inside before pushing it on.
To remove, simply pull the handpiece off the shaft with a firm grip.
