STEP 8 The adjustable plate needs to be drilled to keep it in the proper position, drill two holes and bolt it into position as shown below (ensuring it is still plumb).
When you are done with Step 8, the adjustable plates, upper and lower mounts should be tightened securely on a piling or seawall and totally plumb the sides, front and mount in the 12 o’clock position on the piling. To verify double check with your level.
STEP 9 Repeat steps 1-8 on the second mount.
STEP 10 Slide the assembly “dock side tube” over the top of the seawall/piling side and hold onto it securely, as it can slide down and into the water.
STEP 11 Slide the dock over in between the plates of the float side mounting tube. Ensure the float side tube is fully on the floating dock, the backside of the angle plates should be level with the frame of the dock as in the pictures below.
Once you have the plates positioned on the float, drill the first hole into the frame of the float and drop a bolt with flat washer down into it and loosely tighten the nut and lock washer. Drill the second hole. Tighten bolts down securely.
STEP 12 Repeat steps 10 & 11. Place the PVC covers over the slide assembly internal mechanism, once complete your floating dock is mounted.
Shown above is the smaller floating dock version of the slide assemblies that are used to connect our floating dock to an existing floating dock.
