Polecat Wall Fixing Kit Install

Units come complete with an installation pack that contains the following:

1 Connector
1 Fixing Block
2 Fixing Screws
2 Fixing Plugs
2 Foam Feet
1 Drill Bit

It’s easier if you have an extra pair of hands to install your Hicat® & you'll need a step ladder, medium size cross headed screwdriver, tape measure, pencil & a drill - if you have a stud/joist sensor this will also be useful & if fixing into masonry you may need a specialist drill bit

After unpacking your Hicat® give the unit a good vacuum inside & out to remove any loose fibres

The supplied Fixing Plugs are universal & suitable for fixing into plasterboard, timber or masonry - installing into plasterboard will give a secure fixing & you can also secure through plasterboard into a stud or joist

Move the Hicat® into its proposed position & mark-up along the top edge of the fixing block then unscrew the fixing bracket & use this as a guide to mark-up the fixing holes on the wall

Make sure the Hicat® is plumb & that the fixing block, fixing plate & connector are all secure - if you’ve used the foam pads be very careful to lift the unit when re-positioning it, rather than sliding, which will cause the foam pads to peel off

If your Hicat® is installed on a hard smooth floor & moves during boisterous play stick the foam pads onto the feet to stop any unwanted movement

Remember to give your Hicat® a quick check over from time-to-time to make sure that the fixing block is secure & the unit is stable before allowing your cat to play on it
