1.Why do the toggles sometimes seem stiff or difficult to operate?
The toggles should operate smoothly if the instrument is properly loaded. The instrument may not be properly loaded if during the loading, the levers were not firmly squeezed together. Squeeze the handle levers and try again. Also, check to ensure that the jaws are fully engaged with the needle. If they are not, unload the needle and reload the instrument using a new Single-Stitch Single Use Loading Unit. If the toggles seem stiff during operation, the handle levers may not have been fully squeezed before activating the toggle levers. If the handles require too much force to close, there might be too much tissue inserted into the jaws. Reposition the jaws incorporating less tissue and try squeezing the handle levers again.
