How to operate a pressure washer spray gun

Using the spray gun on your pressure washer is as easy as one-two-spray:

After the gun has been properly installed on a pressure washer:

1) To spray, grasp the gun handle firmly, unlock the safety lever, direct the output in a safe direction and squeeze the trigger lever.

2) To stop spray, simply release the trigger lever while continuing to hold firmly onto the gun handle.

3) When taking a break or upon completing the job, lock the safety lever to prevent accidental operation.
