Hero Tier sabers

Last Updated: November 21 2019

The Hero saber features 2 buttons, for simplicity the button closest to the blade will be referred to as button 1 and the other (furthest) button as button 2.

Blade Installation

Opening retention screw & removing blade plug

To Install your saber blade, first locate your provided Hex key. This can be found inside of a bag located in your shipping box. Next, locate the retention screw nearest to the emitter. Most sabers will have two retention screws near the top of the saber.

Loosen the top retention screw to release the blade plug protecting your LED from dust. Once removed, you can install the blade.

Note: The following sabers (and variations) do not include a blade plug: Chosen, Talon, Forsaken, Exalted, Descendant, Adept, Redeemer, Prodigal Son, Shadow Hunter, and Marauder.

Note: Do not loosen the 2nd lower screw. That secures the LED module and prevents it from releasing which can cause wire damage.

Blade Installation & Tightening

Next, take your blade and insert it into the top of the saber until it stops. Note: if your blade will not go down all of the way, make sure the retention screw is not obstructing the blade.

Use the Hex key wrench to secure the blade by tightening it into blade, turning it right until firmly secure.

Note: Do not over tighten blades. This can cause stripping which will require repair at our facility. Tighten the screw gradually. You can test how secure the blade is by lightly pulling it once the screw stops turning.

Saber Operation

Activation/Power Down

Remove the kill key located below both buttons. Once the LED lights and audio cue plays, tap (quick press) button 1 to activate the saber.

Charging

Troubleshooting

Saber is charged but not turning on/boot audio isn’t playing

Make sure the micro SD card beneath the speaker is seated correctly. The SD card should click down and feel secured when it is in correctly.

Saber is shutting down on clash or blaster deflect

These issues are generally a response to the battery being low but having enough power to still power on. Simply recharge the saber, and this should resolve these issues.
