Polecat Wall Fixing Kit Install

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

1 Foot
2 Connecting Pins
2 Foam Pads (plus spare)
1 Fixing Block
2 Fixing Screws
2 Fixing Plugs
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
