Step 1: Gather
What you'll need:
- Installation plate (Pick one up here if you don't have one)
- Hammer drill
- 1" masonry bit
- Hydraulic cement or similar adhesive (Loctite Construction Adhesive or Quikrete Hydraulic Cement recommended)
- Tape measure
- Marking tape
- Writing implement
- Rag for cleanup
Step 2: Measure and Mark
Step 3: Drill and Clean
Step 4: Check Fit
Once the hole is clean, insert the plate to check for fit and any adjustments the hole may need prior to installing.
Step 5: Install
Apply a modest amount of hydraulic cement or outdoor project adhesive to both the hole and stem of the base plate.
Press firmly and evenly into the hole while wiping away any excess adhesive. Make sure the Swim Tether logo is aligned the way you want.
Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to cure before using your newly installed Swim Tether. Enjoy.
