Detailed mounting kit
Step1: First of all, have a look over the exploded drawing and learn the main dimensions of the tower.
Step2: Attach the 4x through-hole feet to the 2x H legs.
Step3: Decide where you will locate the radar arch. The mounting width is normally 82in-109in adjustable, however you can cut the horizontal arms or the H section to make the tower narrower to fit your boat.
Use the H leg as a tool mark the location of the front and rear mount. The mount can be top or side mounted, just make sure the surface is flat to allow the round mount sit well. Measure the wdith fron the left to right where you will mount the radar arch.
1. You must make sure the mounting position is symmetrical, use the front or rear of the boat as a reference.
2. There should be no wire or any block under the deck.
Step4: Assemble the tower on ground. Firstly insert the 4x L arms into the H top section, keep them loose, and then attach the 2x H legs to the arms. You cannot reverse order or you will feel hard to insert the horizontal arms into H section.
Lift the tower and adjust the width as close as your previous measurement, DO NOT tighten any bolt at this stage.
Step5: Re-confirm the exact location for the 4x deck mounts, we recommend you attach the deck mounts to the legs and use it as a tool to mark the 4x positions, or measure the exact distance between the center point of the front and rear mount. Keep in mind the left and right must be symmetrical and square. And make sure the nylon washer and nylon plate part are assembled in correct order, which will help you fold the tower in future.
Step7: Attach the tower legs to the mounts, then sqaure the tower. Note a wakeboarding tow eye is included in the package, you can discard it or assemble it upside down incase it blocks your radar installation. You can also use it as a center reference to make sure the H section sit in middle of the tower, then drill holes through the H section and horizontal arms and connect them with the 8x long bolts and nuts.
Step8: Tighten all bolts.
How to fold the tower
Disassemble the front or rear feet from the deck mounts, you can push down the tower to the opposite direction.
