When the pendulum movement is installed in a case, you must allow sufficient clearance to prevent the pendulum bob from hitting the sides of the clock case (A). Allow an additional 1/2" on both sides for clearance. Movement must hang perfectly straight in order for the pendulum to operate properly.

It may be just me being impatient but I am confused with how to speed up the pendulum. Do I raise the weight or lower it?

Asked by: pat1
Hi Pat, there is not a way to speed up a pendulum. The speed may increase if the pendulum rod is shortened. Adding weight will slow the pendulum swing. Lower is slower.

How do I measure the swing distance?

Asked by: Papo46
Hi Papo46, the swing distance is measured from the left outside edge to the right outside edge as shown above. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com.

Can I paint this Pendulum black?

Asked by: Papo46
We are unable to see which pendulum you are referring to. Our brass pendulum rods that come with most of our quartz clock movements can be painted black. We do not recommend painting pendulums designed for use with our mechanical clock movements.

I have read that in order to adjust the swing of a pendulum-to add weight to the back of the pendulum. How do I do that and what kind of weight to use? I have a brass breakaway pendulum with a 2 1/8 inch bob.

Asked by: runner
Hello, the easiest way to adjust the swing of the pendulum is to add metal washers or even nickels to the back of the pendulum bob. We recommend taping a few heavier items to the back of the bob to see if that will reduce the swing enough for the case. If you have any questions on this information, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-556-2548.

can the pendulum be cut shorter?  They all seem to be 18" long from the center of the dial.  

Asked by: matt2
Hi Matt, yes - most of our clock pendulums feature breakaway pendulum rods that can easily be cut shorter in 1" increments. Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-556-2548 with any questions on this information.

Can I alter the swing of pendulum? One has room for three inch swing the other four.

Asked by: Melvin
Hi Melvin, yes - you can alter the swing of a pendulum. It's simple! Just add weight to the back of the pendulum to shorten the swing.

Hi, I have a battery operated clock with a pendulum. One day the pendulum stopped swinging and I haven't been able to get it to swing on it's own. Clock works fine. Any ideas of how I might repair it?

Asked by: Laura
Hi Laura, we'll reach out to you soon via email to see which movement you have. Then based on that information, we will be able to provide some trouble shooting tips for that specific movement.
