Stationary Dock Hardware Assembly Guide
Dock System Basics
- The Dock Edge hardware system is designed for use with 1-1/2" thick lumber (minimum width 6")
- All hardware is mounted with carriage bolts
- Always use backer plates or other piece of hardware when bolting through wood along with lock washers. This will eliminate the bolt pulling into or through the wood. This will allow the nuts to become loose and fall off
- Proper distances between the pipes is critical. Use the leg brace holders (93-105-F and 87-107-F) to support the length of the dock. Ensure pipe distance is not more than 72" between pipes
- Use a piano hinge or other arrangement for decking boards over anchor chain corners for easy access for adjustment
Hardware Placement Guide
- Sections should be connected using connector hinge (86-103-F).
- Corner bracket (86-104-F) can be used on the inside in conjunction with the 86-103-F. Use backer plate (87-122-F) on opposite side.
- Start with Corner leg holder (86-100-F) at side of dock closest to the shoreline and place pipe outwards using the side leg holder (86-101-F) with a backer plate against the pipe (93-168-F / 93-110-F) and the outside. Holders can be mounted on the inside
- For mud bottoms attach mud pad (94-102-F) to the legs and for rocky or firm bottoms use the bottom pad (86-102-F)
- For all support sections use angle joist corner (95-122-F)
- All legs should be supported using the leg brace set (89-101-F) and the corner leg holder (87-107-F) and leg brace holder (93-105-F)
- To give the dock added support use the anchor chain corner (91-116-F) in each section at opposite ends
- All pipes should be cap using the pipe caps (91-111-F) to avoid injury from sharp edges on pipe
- Rolling wheel can be installed on the legs to assist in wheeling out the dock sections. Wheel should be attached to the dock using 2 x 86-101-F and 2 x 87-122-F. The wheels are equipped with holes to allow for water to fill the wheel, acting as a functional anchor.
