Safeguard recommends placing mechanical fasteners 1″ x 1″ in each corner of your Anti-Slip Cover with spacing 10″ to 14″ between each fastener.
ATTENTION:
Reduce the speed of your pneumatic air tools to prevent thread galling and bolt snapping while installing saddle clips.
We recommend using a #2 Phillips screwdriver or adaptor when installing to avoid head stripping.
The use of a thread lubricant is also recommended to reduce heat and assist in a smooth installation of this product.
