The accessory adapter is pre-installed in accessory Clamp A. However, if you need to remove the accessory adapter for replacement, follow these steps:
Note: It’s not necessary to remove the accessory adapter in order to insert a pen or scoring stylus.
- Open accessory Clamp A.
- Place your thumb underneath the accessory adapter and apply pressure upwards while pushing down on the clamp. The adapter will pop out of the accessory clamp.
- To re-install the accessory adapter, place a finger underneath clamp A to stabilize it as you reinsert the accessory adapter from above.
- Apply some pressure while inserting the adapter. The adapter will snap into place when properly installed.
Note: The accessory adapter for the Explore One is different than the accessory adapter for the Explore, Explore Air, Explore Air 2 and Cricut Maker machines. In the Explore One, the accessory adapter is switched with the blade housing when the user wishes to write or score. For the Explore, Explore Air, Explore Air 2, and Cricut Maker machines, the accessory adapter is housed in its own clamp, separate from the blade housing.
