Here we have collected some instructions and tips on how to best assemble our products. It is usually very simple as we use few parts and simple but stable constructions - here are some tips along the way, however.
The Oak Rig - The Oak Rig
The rig is easily assembled with 8 screws and a bolt. The dimension of the nut is 36mm, so you need a socket wrench in that size if you don't have a really big wrench at home. The easiest way is to use two keys as the nut is a lock nut ( that is, a nut with a plastic inner sleeve that firmly grips the bolt ) - you have to have a little resistance.
It can also be good to have two people when the rig is to be raised against the wall.
- Start by laying the rigging posts down on the ground. The numbered hole image should be facing up.
- Place the chins module between the rigging posts at the height you want (often at the top) and screw in place.
- Turn the whole rig upside down and attach the side beam on both sides at the height you want to attach the rig to the wall - also here - usually at the top.
- Turn the rig back and grab your training buddy - raise the rig against the wall. Screw into wall and floor.
As for the wall - here it is important to check a little what you have to work with at the place of installation. If you have a plaster wall, you need to plan a little extra. You'll hopefully be lifting heavy and maybe swinging well in the kipping bar - make sure the rig is attached properly.
Find the studs in the wall and if necessary attach a board or plank to the studs and then attach the rigging to the board/plank. Then it will be stable.
We always recommend attaching the rig to both the wall and the floor for best stability. However, it works to let the rig stand on its feet without screwing it to the floor if it is securely attached to the wall.
If you have a gym floor installed, you can choose to let the rig stand up on the floor or cut out holes so the posts go through the floor. If you have the rigging post standing on the floor, it still works fine to write it firmly into the floor. You just screw straight through the rubber floor and into the floor.
Training bench - Oak Flat Bench
Our stable training bench has 6 shorter screws to attach the beam to the underside of the pad. It then has another 8 ( 4 per side ) bolts with nut and washer to attach the legs to the bench.
- Start by attaching the beam to the pad.
- Then fasten the side plates to the beam with bolts and nuts - it may feel like the screws are a little short and that you can't put the plate completely close to the beam - that's perfectly ok, it shouldn't be loose.
- If you angle the plates a little towards the middle, it will be easier. You just need to attach the nuts to the screws just so they are secure. In this position, do not tighten the nuts - leave them loose until the legs are also in place.
- Now insert the foot between the plates at a 90 degree angle. Twist the foot into place - so that the holes are in the right place.
- Insert the screws into the holes and screw on the nut and washer.
- Now you can screw all the nuts on both the legs and the beam so that the side plate is fixed.
