|I just recieved my two skylon bat racks and i need to install them to my oval tube tower. I need to screw through and I cant find the directions anywhere on the internet. ANY help out there with the directions. I have the two racks four thumb screws and the two rectangular pieces of metal. Any idea which side these go on. |
I went riding at Berryessa. Nothing like being on the boat again with nice water cold beer and or course girls.
Thanks for everyones time
|Well first figure out what bar you want em on (upper or lower). Figure out the angle you want, measure and mark both bars and drill holes according to the size of the racks and bolts. It might be a different size on the outside verses the inside, check it out. The hand wheel bolts will be on the inside of the bar.|
|Brandon- It sounds like you don't have the mounts for a non-Skylon tower. Skylon towers have the holes pre-drilled, but if you don't have their tower, they have mounts for them just like any other board rack. |
Can you post a picture of the parts you have? What are the two rectangular pieces of metal?
|you can just drill holes in the tower. that is what I had to do. I dont know what that metal bar is for...|
|Skylon usually provides a drilling jig (piece of bar stock with pre measured holes), so that you can just line jig on the oval tube the way you want it, clamp it down, and drill 1/4" pilot holes. Then you drill the inside holes out to 3/8" and the outside holes to 5/8" will have to be drilled out larger (I'm pretty sure these are the right sizes, but you can check the O.D. of the mounting bolts, and the O.D. of the mouunt shoulders on the rack. |
