NEVER MOUNT THEM TO THE FLOOR BOARD. THEY NEED TO BE MOUNTED TO THE CAGE. FOLLOW MANUFACTURES RECCOMENDATION ON INSTALL

FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ASSUMING YOU HAVE BOLT IN TYPE BE SURE TO USE GOOD BOLTS I ALWAYS USE GRADE 8 AND NO LESS THAN 3/8" IT MAY BE OVERKILL BEING GRADE 8 BUT ITS NO USE HAVING A STRONG BELT AND A BOLT THAT SHEERS.

WITH THE FRAME MADE INTO PART OF THE CAGE I HAVE CONNECTED BOTH LAP BELTS TO THE FRAME WITH 2"X 3/16" STEEL BARS THAT IS WELDED TO THE FRAME. HAVE A FREIND WHO ALSO DOES THIS BUT USED GRADE 5 BOLTS IN DUBBLE SHEER. SHULDER BELTS GO OVER SEAT AND BOLTS TO A PEICE OF 1 1/2"X3/16" ANGLE THAT IS WELDED FOR 3" ALONG HORIZONTAL BAR BEHIND SEAT. MY SUBMARINE BELT IS CONNECTED SIMALLARY TO THE LAP BELTS BUT ONLY USES 1/8" STEEL.
