The rear slip-coupler unscrews completely from the main body of the Blast shield. The coupler is slipped over the muzzle device at a 45 degree angle, then straightened (with the threads away from the barrel) to allow the coupler to slip into the rear accessory/BFA ring of an A2 device. The tapered end of the main body of the Blast Shield is then inserted between the coupler and the muzzle device. The coupler is then re-threaded onto the main body of the Blast Shield while still in the accessory ring.
