Tomcat & Fatcat Install

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

Adjustable Feet
3 Foam Pads (plus spare)
1 Ceiling Connector
1 Ceiling Bush
1 Drill Bit
1 Hex Key

You’ll need an extra pair of hands to install your Hicat® plus a step ladder, pencil & a drill that can hold a 11mm bit - if you have a small mirror this will also be useful



1  Install the connector into the middle insert on top of the Hicat® & the feet into the three outer inserts on the base - if you are installing the unit on a smooth hard floor stick the foam pads to the feet



2  Mark-up a hole on the ceiling in the centre of the proposed Hicat® position



3  Remove cat



4  Drill a hole at the centre mark at least 20mm deep using the drill bit & insert the bush into the ceiling



5  Remove cat



6  With the Access Holes facing you & using them to hold the Hicat® lift the unit & locate the connector into the bush keeping the unit as vertical as possible - it's best to have someone on a step ladder to guide the unit into position while you manoeuvre it



7  Remove cat



8  When the connector is located in the bush push the bottom of the Hicat® into an upright position - manoeuvring the Hicat® into position can be tricky so a good tip is to use a small mirror to help guide
the connector into the bush



9  After the Hicat® is installed the connector should extend into the ceiling bush by at least 10mm - as a visual check the gap between the top of the Hicat® & ceiling should be 20mm or less after installation



10  If the gap between the ceiling & Hicat® is more than 20mm use the hex key to raise the Hicat® by slowly adjusting each foot clockwise from the inside the unit bit by bit so as to spread weight evenly across the three feet as it lifts



11  Remove cat



12  When the Hicat® is set at the correct height rotate it so the access holes are facing in the desired direction - when you’re happy with the rotation you then need to make sure the Hicat® is plumb



13  Remove cat



14  Finally, with the Hicat® at the correct height & rotation, level the unit - check that all three feet are all in contact with the floor so the weight is evenly spread between the feet



15  Give your Hicat® a good vacuum inside & out to remove any loose fibres & remember to give your unit a quick check over from time to time to make sure that the ceiling connector is correctly engaged, the feet are level & the unit is stable
