Rainbird 5000 Sprinkler Head Arc


I am trying to adjust the arc on the sprinkler so it will not spray on my driveway. I inserted the screwdriver to decrease the arc and it has an even wider arc. How easy is it to damage these sprinklers by changing the arc?

For their size I think the sprinkler head is pretty durable but you have to keep in mind that it's a little plastic thing and not go crazy. The left side of the arc is fixed so you rotate the entire head to set it. Then hold the head against the left arc stop so it can't move and use the screw driver to adjust the right arc stop position.

Here are the instructions for your sprinkler head.
