Pocket Shelter / installation
Tools Needed For Installation
Drill (hammer drill recommended)
1/2" Masonry bit
Folding ladder (2)
3/8" Socket with drill attachment
Attach the RAFTER TOP to the UPRIGHT with (4) 3/8" x 1" carriage bolts, nuts and washers. Repeat for all RAFTER TOPS and UPRIGHTS.
Stand up the UPRIGHT ASSEMBLIES and attach each PURLIN with (2) 3/8" x 1" carriage bolts, nuts and washers. Continue standing up UPRIGHT ASSEMBLIES and attaching PURLINS if building a modular shelter.
Attach each REAR PANEL SUPPORT with (2) 3/8" x 3.25" bolts, (4) washers, and (2) nuts. The surface with 21 holes should be facing away from the shelter.
Using the UPRIGHT feet as a guide, drill ?" dia. x 5.5" holes in the concrete footings at each UPRIGHT foot. Install (4) ?" dia. x 5.5" wedge anchors at each UPRIGHT foot. See footing diagram for more detail.
If using metal roofing, place the initial section of TYPE S DECK and secure with (6) ?" x 1" self-drilling screws. The screws will drill through the TYPE S DECK and shelter without a pilot hole. Place the second section of TYPE S DECK with sufficient overlap and secure with (6) ?" x 1" self-drilling screws. Continue with the remaining sections. The last section of TYPE S DECK will receive (9) ?" x 1" self-drilling screws.
If using polycarbonate roofing, place POLYCARBONATE ROOF PANELS and POLYCARBONATE FLANGE. After locating a pilot hole in the PURLIN, use a ?" x 1" self-drilling screw to drill through the POLYCARBONATE ROOF PANEL and into the pilot hole. Confirm the POLYCARBONATE ROOF PANEL is aligned with the shelter and continue with all pilot holes. Use ?" x 1.5" self-drilling screws when attaching the POLYCARBONATE FLANGE.
