TABS: Prominent grooved parts of the cube, which are located at different heights on each of the 4 corners of the “cube” (tab #1 to #4, #1 being the lowest and #4, the highest). These tabs are an integral part of the Candock system. When ralied in groups of 4, the cubes create a larger square. At the center of this square, 4 different tabs overlap each other. These tabs form a single opening and are meant to be coupled with our CANDOCK SLIDING NUT and G2 CONNCETING PIN to form a
PLUGS: These watertight plugs are always found on the side of the cube that is between tab # 1 and # 4. These same plugs, made of breathable material, act as pressure release valves thus preventing any cube deformation which is due to temperature or altitude.Furthermore, these plugs prevent any condensation inside the cube.
With the use of the provided tools, proceed following these few steps:
PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
*During the installation of a dock, always have the plugs oriented towards the shore. This orientation will simply use less CANDOCK SPACERS and will improve the aesthetic of your dock. (*If your configuration is meant to go along the shore line instead of off-shore, align plugs towards the shortest side of your dock)
**Always make sure to regroup 4 different tabs height to complete your assembly. Make sure they are in their pre-destined position and that none of these are wrongly placed.
***Preassemble the dock in larger sections directly on the ground. When in water, prepare the missing units of G2 CONNECTING PINS and CANDOCK SLIDING NUTS and position on the corresponding side of each sections. This will help you save time.
ORIENTATION OF TABS
1- Prepare all items (basic products such as : G2 CUBES, G2 CONNECTING PINS and CANDOCK SLIDING NUTS) and have them unboxed close to your “assembly” area.
2- Place the CANDOCK SLIDING NUTS on the lower tabs (usually #1) .
3- Position the sections next to each other and ensure that the tabs are positioned correctly.
4- Insert the G2 CONNECTING PINS in the tabs and screw-in using the proper tooling.
5- If necessary, place CANDOCK LUG CONNECTORS and CANDOCK NUTS on empty tabs on the perimter of your dock. If necessary, do not forget to fill the space between the tabs with CANDOCK SPACERS.
THE SCISSOR TECHNIQUE
While assembling bigger sections on water, place a G2 CONNECTING PIN, as shown on the picture.
Then bring the two sections side by side while making sure that the tabs properly overlap each other. Then insert the missing pins. This technique will help you assemble big sections with ease
