The adjusting element for maximum flexibility in the screwed state
With the WITOL Adjust setting elements you have maximum flexibility in the assembly of individual components. The pre-set WITOL Adjust is pre-assembled on your component or the car body by individual connection concepts. Afterwards, you can align your component at the installation site and screw it as usual.
WITOL Adjust adjustment elements offer, in addition to the radial compensation during the bolting process, the possibility to adjust an end position axially afterwards – by manual adjustment. For this process, the screw connection does not have to be loosened again and therefore has no influence on the preload forces in the system. A self-locking thread geometry prevents unintentional adjustment of the components and requires no additional fixing after the end position has been reached.
Ideal for complex connections
Especially in demanding installation situations, where several attachments meet, WITOL Adjust adjusting elements offer the optimal solution to bring the gap to the perfect final dimension even after screwing. In addition, fine adjustment is possible, which cannot be achieved with classic fasteners:
- Optimum gap progression can also be adjusted after screwing.
- Simplified assembly process even for complex installation situations
- High precision with optimized cycle times
- Manual adjustment without influencing the preload forces
WITOL Adjust variants
Proven WITOL Adjust elements, which differ in the respective connection to the interface.
The WITOL 300 is fixed in the interface by means of a bayonet lock and a quarter turn 45°. Thus, no screw is required and a firm connection is established due to the single-threaded access. The pre-setting at delivery can be subsequently adjusted by means of a multi-tooth wrench.
The WITOL 384 is clipped into the interface. The clip geometry allows convenient manual assembly and ensures a secure connection to the interface. With this adjustment element, the screw sits completely in the WITOL, yet allows radial compensation. By integrating the screw, less installation space is required.
The interface adaptation for the WITOL 398 is realized with two components. Fixing the basic element with a union nut enables a very tight connection. The placement of the screw on the WITOL, has a favorable effect on the radial compensation. In addition, the small diameter requires only a small installation space.

Where is the WITOL Adjust used?
The fixing of headlights and taillights requires the highest precision. WITOL Adjust setting elements enable exact alignment of the components.
By using the WITOLe, the front end is fixed to the body with optimal gap alignment. With the WITOL Adjust, the front end can be subsequently adjusted.
Door handles make a decisive contribution to the quality perception of the vehicle. Tolerances can be compensated by WITOLE especially for flush door handles.
