How to Adjust the Crutch of a Wall Clock Pendulum

Wall clocks with pendulums are mechanical watches. Hanging weights supply power to a system of internal gears. The movement of a pendulum regulates time. If the pendulum swings uneven, wall clock will not keep accurate time. The pendulum is connected to a loop of wire called crutch. Adjust crutch will fix the swing of the pendulum wall clock.

Instructions

  1. Use your hand to stop the pendulum wall clock. Wait for the pendulum to stop swinging. It should come to rest in the middle of the dial.How to Adjust the Crutch of a Wall Clock Pendulum 1

2. Move the pendulum slightly to the right until it makes a clicking sound. Move it to the left until it makes a clicking sound different.

3. Note how far the pendulum moving in every direction before it makes a clicking sound. It will click sooner on either the right or left side of the wall clock based on Historyaah.

4. Bend crutch something against the side of the wall clock that clicked only when the pendulum moved. Do not bend the crutch too much. The crutch thread is delicate and can break easily.
