-[* black] Insert wisdom here.
+[title] Inserting/Locking the Bowden Tube
+[* black] Slide one of the Lanyward PTC Clips onto the Bowden (PTFE) Tube.
+[* black] Insert the Bowden (PTFE) Tube into the top of the hot end. Press the tube down until you feel it seat in the bottom of the hot end. Press the hot end effector down so the nozzle is against the glass plate and give the Bowden (PTFE) Tube one more good push to ensure that it is seated fully.
+[* black] With the Bowden (PTFE) Tube pressed down, you will now lift up on the black ring in the top of the hot end.
+[* black] Insert the PTC Lanyard onto the black ring in the top of the hotend. This will secure the Bowden (PTFE) Tube and prevent it from being able to work its way out of the hot end.
+ [* icon_caution] It is critical that the PTFE is fully seated in the hotend. If it is not it can result in the hot end jamming.
