3Plate preparation

The plate has to be adapted accurately to the contour of the proximal fragment.

Contouring of the plate

The plate has to be adapted accurately to the contour of the proximal fragment. Use bending pliers to contour the plate. Be careful to bend in between the holes by positioning the pliers over the plate holes. Alternatively, insert the threaded bolt into the plate holes to bend the plate.
The bend should never go through a hole as this may damage the locking mechanism.
