Polecat Wall Fixing Kit Install

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

2 Connecting Pins

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

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

Install the two connecting pins into the two outer inserts on top of the Hicat® & attach the fixing block on to the top of the Hicat® - make sure you push the connecting pins into the block until they click into position noting that the seam should be at the back of the unit when installed
