Classic Straps Installation Instructions

Directions

Step 1:

Determine the Desired Strap Length

  1. Measure the outer dimension of the beam. Figure A
  2. Calculate the length of strap based on the beam’s outer dimensions plus how many sides you want to cover.
  3. Cut the strap to length. Figure B
  4. Lightly score a v-groove into the strap to allow it to bend more easily at the corners.
HINT: Before cutting take into consideration the location of the clavos. You may need to trim from two sides to get the desired section of strap.

Step 2:

Apply Adhesive

Apply a ¼” bead of adhesive to the back of the strap, avoiding the edges.

Step 3:

Install Strap

  1. Press the strap to the beam working from the center to ensure good contact between the adhesive and the beam.
  2. Screw the strap to the beam.
  3. Wipe off any excess adhesive with a clean cloth.

Step 4:

Touch-up

  1. Look at the strap from the ground. If the strap is not laying flat against the beam install additional screws.
  2. If screw heads are visible, hide them using black caulk or permanent marker.
