Morehouse load cell alignment plugs are used to help center the load
cell in calibrating machines. They are used in combination with the
other adapters below. More information on load cell adapters and the
mounting accessories can be found here

|Thread is past flush and into the cell. |
When using your alignment plugs that thread into the
bottom of your load cells, make sure they are threaded flush to the
the cell. Once they are flush, thread
the adapter an extra turn into the cell.
You want to make sure that none of the threads are exposed below the
base of the cell. If there is a
thread or more exposed, the load will be generated through the internal
of the cell and not its base. This will result in an additional
calibration error of about 0.012 %. It will often result in damage to
the alignment plug.

have received numerous load cells with damaged alignment plugs.
