Video TranscriptHi, I will take you through the setup of the SM30, a roof mount with telescoping stay bars. Here is what it looks like, fully installed.
The equipment needed to assemble and install this mount is a drill with five-sixteenths of an inch and three-eighths of an inch Tek driver bits, a level, roofing silicon, spanners, adjustable wrenches, or suitable sockets with a driver bit for your drill and of course the mount itself.
Please ensure appropriate personal protective equipment is used during your installation. This may include but is not limited to gloves, goggles, safety boots and a harness when working at heights.
The first step is to choose an appropriate roof installation location; this must be carefully inspected to ensure it is structurally sound and in good repair before installation. Please also ensure the roof location chosen is suitable for optimal signal and accepted by the customer before installation.
After choosing the installation location, install the clevis bracket by removing existing roof screws and applying roofing silicon to the penetration points. Penetrations should only be through the ridges of the roof sheeting. Seat the two cyclone washers and fasten down the clevis bracket using the two type seventeen, sixty-five-millimetre tek screws.
Now install the two duo cleats. Make sure to install them where the stay bars are not extended beyond their maximum install length of two point seven metres and with a minimum seventy-degree angle between the two stay bars. Remove existing roof screws, apply roofing silicon to the penetration points, seat the two rubber washers, and fasten down the duo cleat bracket using the two type seventeen, sixty-five-millimetre Tek screws. Repeat for the second duo cleat.
Take the thinner end of the two stay bars and, using a suitable tool like an adjustable wrench, carefully bend the two flattened ends to an appropriate angle for the roof pitch you are installing; repeat for the other end as well so the top of the stay bar will fit flush against the mast when connected.
Remove the nut from the top of the duo cleat, seat the thinner end of the stay bar over the bolt head and loosely thread the nut back on, leaving it so the stay bar is free enough to lay down on the roof surface without leveraging the duo cleat. Repeat on the other side.
Now seat the bottom of the mast into the clevis bracket and lock it into place using an M8 hex bolt with nut, two flat washers and a spring washer. Gently tighten, making sure not to overtighten and crush the mast.
While stabilizing the mast with one hand, lift one of the stay bars into place. Ensure the flattened ends are also bent to a suitable angle to fit flush against the mast surface. Attach to the mast using an M8 hex bolt with a flat washer. Now lift the second stay bar into position and seat over the bolt end. Gently fasten it in place using a flat washer, spring washer, and M8 nut. Firmly tighten into place, ensuring not to overtighten and crush the mast tube.
Tighten and lock into place the nuts on the top of the two duo cleats to secure the stay bar bases to the roof.
Using your level, adjust the mast so it is plumb. With the mast held in this position, drill the self-tapping tek screws into the overlapped section of the two stay bars using the pre-drilled points as pilot holes. There are two fastening points on each stay bar.
Please note that the mount can have the stay bars installed at a ninety-degree angle if required. There is an additional pre-drilled bolt hole in the mast and an extra M8 bolt with washers and nut for this installation method. Here is how the mount looks when installed with the stay bars at ninety degrees.
The installation is complete, and the mast is ready to install and align your antenna, following the manufacturer's instructions.
