I am putting a p228 cartridge on a silvertone 7210 phonograph and it says it snaps in to a bracket that you screw to the tonearm. I don't see any way to hold the bracket to the tone arm.

Hi Timmy,
Would you please post a photo of the underside of
the tonearm ?

If you had an original cart mounted through a hole
in the tonearm head, then there may not be
the two standard 1/2 inch mounting holes in the
tonearm. If so, you'll have to improvise on a new
mounting technique.

If you bought it from Gary at the V of Music, he may
suggest you try a different cart that is amenable to
retro-mounting. He sells kits for this.

I think I figured it out there is a slot on each side of the cartridge where the screws fit and the other u shape piece was just a needle protector when it was in the package.

How do you separate the cartridge from the bracket that screws to the tonearm thanks.

The Pfanstiehl is held in the bracket by friction.
The tail end of the bracket has a molded slot in it that
the cartridge end nub fits in.
The front end of the bracket has a molded clip arm that the
front of the cart snaps into.

To remove the bracket, remove the stylus carefully.
Then take a small flat end screwdriver and place b/t
the front clip arm and the body of the cartridge.
Hold the cartridge firmly with one hand.
With the other hand, slowly, but firmly pry
the arm of the molded clip up until cartridge releases.

The bracket really holds the cart very firmly, so some
force will be needed.
Just don't use any jerky motion when prying the clip arm
from the cartridge, so you don't break the bracket.

This website image carousel gives various views of the cart and bracket
together, so that might give you the perspectives.
Place cursor over image, and it will show different views.

Also, I have had to file out the bracket molded mount slots to allow
for the mount screws to fit onto. The older Pfanstiehl brackets had a rounded
out mount slot, instead of the new square ones.
