Step 2: Laying the fender on a flat surface, use a power drill to drill the guide holes at the peak of the fender. Remove the drill swarf and burrs.

Step 3: Slide the aluminium/stainless steel fixing strip inside the fender along its base.

Step 4: Depending on its length, have somebody help you hold the fender in the desired position. If you are installing the D fender with lip, rest the inner edge of the lip against the top edge of the pier.

Step 5: Using a power drill, fix the screw into position.
