The Loc-R-Bar attaches to the boat using two stainless steel inserts that are screwed onto either side of the gunnel wall. The Loc-R-Bar Alarm System Installation can be as easy as following these steps detailed below.
Prepare by gathering the required tools:
1 3/8″ Hole Cutter
STEP 1: Place the Loc-R-Bar on the boat deck, midway across storage lockers to be secured.
STEP 2: Extend the Loc-R-Bar to the inside walls of boat.
STEP 3: While in the supplied aluminum mounts, place the lock in the Loc-R-Bar and bring the Loc-R-Bar to the top of the sidewall.
STEP 4: Hold aluminum mounts flat against the interior walls with either screw down. Place the ends of the Loc-R-Bar into aluminum mount. This procedure requires two people.
IMPORTANT: Be sure that the Loc-R-Bar and aluminum mounts are STRAIGHT, LEVEL, and FIRMLY held against the interior walls of boat.
STEP 5: Mark the sidewall of the boat below the single screw on the aluminum mount. This provides the vertical location for hole placement.
STEP 6: Be sure to check for any wiring as you drill holes. Also, always install brackets as low to the deck as possible. With these two considerations in mind, drill a hole into the sidewall with a drill flat on the deck of the boat. This will allow hole to be slightly above the deck.
STEP 7: Place the aluminum mount in the hole. Mark the two screw holes and remove the aluminum mount. Drill starter holes for screws. Then, place aluminum mount in hole and tighten screws till snug.
STEP 8: Extend the Loc-R-Bar into the mounts and lock.
That’s it. Enjoy the safety and peace of mind provided by your Loc-R-Bar Alarm System!
