When installing a Vehicle Fixing Kit you must first check what is underneath or behind the position of the installation before you drill the first hole to ensure your chosen fastener will not penetrate for example, the petrol tank or electrical wiring.

4: Installing the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit under a parcel shelf.

mk2 Docking Station...

Minimum of 2 fasteners front and rear but preferably 4 fasteners along the front and 4 at the rear.

mk3 Docking Station...

6 fasteners evenly spaced along the front and 6 at the rear.

Please note...

Some vehicle makes - models have punched out electrical wiring access holes in the Steel parcel shelf frame which may coincide with a chosen fastener location.

If this is the case simply bypass that location and place your fastener as close as possible to the punched out hole.

Pre-drill a pilot hole...

Through the Docking Station and the Marine Ply at the front and through the Marine Ply at the rear.

You may also use existing screw hole positions in the front of the Docking Station if any are more convenient to use.

To do this remove the existing screw and replace it with your chosen fastener.

Use your chosen fastener through the Marine Ply at the rear.

5: Suggestions for installation of the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit.

Depending on how you intend to screw in the fastener (either by hand or with a drill with the appropriate screwdriver bit in it) depends on what you do next.

No matter whether you are screwing the fasteners in by hand or using a drill with a screwdriver bit we suggest you pre-drill both the Marine Ply and Steel.

Hold the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit in position and screw the first fastener through the parcel shelf, to the floor in the boot or to the floor under the front seat.

Once in position screw in the remaining fasteners.

Do you require a quotation.

6: Installing flat to the floor in the boot or under one of the front seats.

The following refers to fitting in the boot and applies to both Marine Ply and Steel vehicle fixing kits.

you must
affix to a Steel floor pan or chassis

Note...

Affixing to cardboard or thin timber floor or to a polystyrene infill, as are in some vehicle makes and models after 2001, is not acceptable under any circumstance.

When affixing to a totally flat surface with full Steel support underneath or to the floor with carpet or rubber matting eg. under front seat, then the Marine Ply maybe able to be substituted in some vehicles with either.

7: Suggested fasteners to install the Vehicle Fixing Kit.

The following is a suggestion about the fastener type used to install the both styles of vehicle fixing kits:

Type 17 Wood Tek screws full thread 5/16” hex head drive.

We suggest Wood Tek screws instead of Metal Tek screws because Wood Tek screws have a higher pitch between the threads than Metal Tek screws and has less chance of stripping when screwing them in.

Type 17 wood tek screws
full thread with hex head drive.
Type 17 wood tek screws full thread with hex head drive.

We highly recommend placing a fastener in every pre-drilled hole in the Steel Vehicle Fixing Kit and when installing the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit under the parcel shelf or to the floor - chassis follow number 4 above.
