Strut Assembly for 9 & 10 Foot Wide Doors
An eight foot strut is actually 95-1/4″ in length. To get the desired length for a nine foot wide door the 36 in connector piece is inserted underneath the eight foot strut 23-1/4 in.
Using the 1/2″ TEK screws included in your order secure the strut to the strut connector as shown in the photo. Keep 1/2 inch away from edge of the connector when inserting screws. Repeat on reverse side
When the strut is assembled, measure 54 in. to the center of the strut. Mark with a black tip marker or pencil a small dot on each flange. Drill to small starter holes for the 1 in. tek screws. This will make it easier for one person to level and screw in the middle two screws
