ATTENTION:

  1. The Floor-Mat Store recommends placing mechanical fasteners 1 in x 1 in each corner of your Anti-Slip Cover with spacing 10 in to 14 in between each fastener.
  2. Reduce the speed of your pneumatic air tools to prevent thread galling and bolt snapping while installing saddle clips.
    We recommend using a Torx screwdriver 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.

 

 

 

Installation With Adhesive:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Install utilizing Universal Saddle Clip Assemblies with Slotted Truss Head Bolt, Nut and Lock Washer (All Stainless Steel)

The number of Saddle Clip Assemblies is directly influenced by the condition of the grating to be covered. New and good condition grating may not require as many Saddle Clip Assemblies. Good condition is considered flat/level and non-corroded.
