Tomcat & Fatcat Install

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

1 Connector
1 Bush
1 Drill Bit

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

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

Drill a hole at the centre mark at least 20mm deep using the drill bit & insert the bush into the ceiling - adding a dab of glue to the bush before you insert it will also help keep it in place over time

Manoeuvring the Hicat® into position can be tricky so it's best to have someone on a step ladder with s mall mirror to guide the unit into position while you manoeuvre it



When the connector is located in the bush push the bottom of the Hicat® into an upright position

After the Hicat® is installed the connector should extend into the ceiling bush by at least 10mm
