Title: Spray nozzle repositioning device

Abstract: Disclosed is a spray nozzle repositioning device for attaching to a spray bar in a multi-nozzle spray dampening system of a printing press to reposition the nozzle and reduce the area covered by the dampening spray. The positioning device has a fluid conducting body member to which is connected a first coupling member which extends transversely outwardly from the body member and engages the nozzle connector on the spray bar. A second coupling member spaced from the first coupling member is operatively connected to the body member and extends transversely outward in the direction opposite to the first direction and has formations which permit the mounting of the nozzle in fluid communication with the body member so that the nozzle may be repositioned transversely closer to the adjacent nozzle and closer to the surface being sprayed.
