A series of FREE Mini Guides for boating projects that run through the basic steps for the practical boat owner. This Mini Guide concentrates on installing a Canopy Slide Kit to an existing canopy and shows, that with little work, better access can be achieved to and from you boat.
There are various Slide Track lengths available so work out where the tracks will sit and how they will operate best.
See where you can install fixing screws most securely.
It is important to look at your canopy design. Ask yourself whether you need to install the tracks as a side mount or a top mount setup.
Ensure the canopy bars fold away as intended.
Fit the Canopy End Plugs or End Caps at the bottom of the canopy bars.
Remember, if you need to cut bars make sure you have measured the cut point accurately.
You have a choice of using an All-in-One Nylon Slide Unit with built in stopper or a Stainless Steel Slider & separate Stopper to help position the bars.
We are usually able to add Zipped Doors to your existing side curtains for improved access.
Alternatively you may wish to fit a new Canopy as you fit the slide kit.
