     Attaching Kirby handle grip

    You can use a Phillips screw driver or simply hold the screw head with your thumb.  (If using a screw driver do not over tighten the screw.)

    Technical note - screws may look the same for all models but some of them are a different length.  As far as I have noticed, screws for Kirby vacuums G4, G5, G6, Ultimate G and Ultimate G Diamond Edition are all the same.
