    Hello Avet foroum, I purchased a power handle assembly from Avet and after install I can’t get the 2 speed to shift properly it won’t stay locked. Any Suggestions please.

    It's a little tricky. You need to be sure that the base plate -- the part next to the handle that takes 4 screws -- is aligned perfectly so that the screw holes in the handle, the base plate and the cover line up exactly.

    I have to push the lever up to lock in low speed. Could the spring be bad because it doesn’t operate properly?

    I doubt the spring is bad. Is the cover pressing on it so that it can't spring properly?

    Put the gear in low and loosen screws in little increments till the button pops back in high gear. My MXJ R, has this problem after installing an aftermarket handle.
