The following symbols are used throughout this manual for ease of use.
Step 1: Measure and mark the location of the guide holes at a maximum of 450mm apart (from centrelines).
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.
