Product Care & Repair
The goal of keeping your brailler maintained is to keep it in good, working condition for many years to come. Braillers that are in near mint condition that are over 50 years old are in that good of condition because they were kept a good environment, and were maintained properly over the years.
Simple steps to keep your brailler in top working order:
- Store your brailler in a clean dry environment; humid and moist conditions can accelerate corrosion of the metal components.
- Clean the exterior of your brailler on a regular basis using a lint free cloth and soft bristle brush.
- Always keep your brailler covered when not in use; doing this will keep dust and debris from entering your brailler and avoid premature loss of motion (sluggish action) to the keys and carriage assembly.
- Send your brailler in to a certified Perkins repair center for regular service; we recommend every 3 – 5 years under normal use. For braillers that are heavily used or exposed to harsh environmental conditions, service more frequently.
