No Instructions included on how to adjust the squeezer. Finally figured it out, but it would have been more helpful. Once it was properly adjusted, the squeezer worked perfectly.

Nice design & good quality stainless. Locking mechanism for handles makes it very compact for storage. Easy to adjust gap for rivet lengths and good feel for rivet installation.
