INSTALLATION & MORE
INSERT INSTALLATION
There are three types of inserts. As indicated below, the first two must be
heated in order to be installed. Install inserts beginning either at an end cap
or at the transom.
TIPS
>
>
To avoid insert shrinkage, always screw down each
end of flexible insert. The screws will be hidden from
view once you install the end caps.
Tubular
1.
Using a heat gun, heat approximately 3' of insert until it compresses with a pinch.
2.
Flatten the insert between your fingers and insert it into the rub rail until the
heated section has been installed.
3.
Repeat in maximum 3' increments until the entire insert has been installed.
V12-0303
1.
Using a heat gun, heat approximately 2' of insert until it is hot to the touch.
2.
Insert a few inches of the top leg into the rub rail.
3.
Using a stiff putty knife, poke the bottom leg into the channel.
4.
Repeat steps 2 & 3 until the heated section has been installed.
5.
Heat the next 2' and repeat steps 2 through 4 until the entire insert has been installed.
Flexible Inserts
1.
These inserts can be installed at room temperature.
2.
Squeeze the insert between your fingers and insert it into the channel of the
rub rail until the entire insert has been installed.
3.
Tapping it with a rubber mallet will help set the insert. Inserts V12-0317 &
V12-0334 need to be set by tapping it with a rubber mallet.
END CAP INSTALLATION
There are two types of end caps:
1.
In-line end caps are installed on the same
surface as the rub rail.
2.
Corner end caps are used when a rub rail ends
at the transom. Corner end caps are installed
on the transom with the cap extending out the side to cap the rub rail.
RUB STRAKES
Stainless steel are designed to screw down to the deck to
prevent chafing of lines from anchors, dock fenders and mooring
lines. These are very attractive and functional accessories and
available in multiple widths and lengths from 8" - 24".
RUB ENDS
Stainless steel rail ends add a finished appearance to the ends of
stainless steel rub rail. The rail end has a square cut edge designed
to line up perfectly with the terminating end of the stainless steel
rub rail, while the other end has a tapered finished look. Available
in 3/4" and 1" width pre-drilled and countersunk screw holes.
