Installation Instructions:

1. Extend A Hand is designed to mount directly to wall studs on 16" centers, or to previously installed wood backing.

2. Locate studs in wall and position Extend A Hand accordingly. Mark hole location or use template provided.

Installation Figure 1
5. Insert end caps into U-shaped tube (they will only go in one direction and still allow the bolt to go in properly) bolt both ends into hole #2 (See figure 1) using 5/16" bolts and acorn nuts provided. Acorn nuts should be to the inside as shown in Figure 1 and 2.

6. Tighten nuts tight then back them off approximately one quarter turn for ease of movement.

7. Test several times to be sure that lock pins are entering lock hole #1 (See figure 1) and releasing fairly easily.

Note: The lock pin is designed to protrude out of both sides evenly and at the same time. This locking system takes a fair amount of pressure on pin #2 in order to release pin #1. (See figure 2). Do not use tape of any kind to hold one or both pins open. Doing so may cause injury.
