Push in the two tabs on
each of the ramp “wings.”
b. Attach the support
braces to the wing tabs by inserting the nylon
bolts through the holes and securing them on the
underside of the ramp with a nylon nut .
c. Finish attaching the
wing brace-strips by securing the middle portion
(two holes per brace) with the bolts and nuts.

single right way; however, we suggest that you:
a. Find a spot visible
from all parts of the pool, with minimal deck
traffic and activity.
b. Install the
D-ring-clips, flat side down, approximately 3-6"
from the pool edge, and approximately 8" apart.
Attach Ramp to
a. Run a rope end
through the mounted D-Ring
and pull/position the ramp snug to the wall with
about 3-5” of the nose end under the recommended
level of water (see Positioning the Ramp).
b. Thread the rope
through one of the nylon washers up to the
D-ring opening and place a simple knot behind
it. The washer keeps the knot from pulling
through the D-ring.

the ¼” holes located under logo, about 3 ½“

- Ensure that both
sides of the mounting rope are even. Tie a
simple knot at each side of the ramp to
prevent the ramp from shifting when in use.
- -Proceed with
regular instructions. Be sure the ramp end
fits snuggly under the coping.
For vinyl lined pools-- to prevent wear on
liner, adhere an extra layer of vinyl on pool
where ramp will be installed and/or tape the
edges of the ramp with vinyl repair tape.
Tighten the mounting ropes until the wing end
swings against the pool wall, so the nose end is
3-5” below the waterline and the ramp is at an
angle that is approximately
30° below horizontal. Check tightness of the
mounting rope by pressing firmly down on the
ramp near the wall. It should not deflect
downward more that 2 to 4 inches.
