How to Change Mug Press Attachments on a 3-in-1 Press

I told you guys a few weeks ago that I got a new Trans Pro Mug Press from Pro World and it's so cool because it's a 3-in-1!

The 3 in 1 mug press means it has three different attachments so you can press different size and shape mugs.  
The benefit of this Trans Pro 3 in 1 mug press from Pro World over some of their other mug presses is that it can take different size and different shape mugs. For examples, latte mugs, which are tapered will fit in this mug press with the included attachment.

It's not terribly difficult or time consuming to change the attachments on this TransPro mug press, but it's important to make sure you're doing it correctly to ensure you're getting the right pressure and temperature!

To change the attachment on this press it's just a few steps.  Be sure the press is off and completely cool when switching out attachments.

Start by turning the four butterfly screws so you can remove the screws holding the attachment into the base.

Pull out the screws.

Carefully, unplug the attachment's heating cord from the base of the mug press.

Grab another attachment. I swapped my original attachment out for the latte mug attachment which is tapered or conical.

Start by lining up the holes on the attachment with the side of the base that's further away from the pressure handle.

This side of the base is stationary so you want to lock in the attachment to this side first.  Don't fully tighten the bolts yet though.

Now line up the holes on the other side of the attachment with the rotating  piece. Push the screws through the holes and then add the butterfly bolts to keep it in place. Tighten all bolts.

Grab your mug and place it into the mug press.

Close the press with the handle. If the mug can move at all, increase the pressure by turning the pressure knob.

Finally plug the cord from the heat attachment into the base of the mug press - line up the notches to plug in and then twist the lock until it's tight.

That's all there is to changing out the attachments on my favorite 3-in-1 mug press, the TransPro from Pro World.
