INSTALLING UNIT ON HEARTH with METAL BACKING
This hearth guard device consists of two sections. The left side is completely covered with pad. The right side, which is partially covered with pad, slides under the left side for adjustment. Now extend sections of unit and place on hearth. Pull section together until snug on hearth. Without allowing sections to slide, remove unit and turn over to expose tightening rod (6). Insert rod hook into nearest hole and pull sections apart so there is enough tension to keep the hook in hole. Reposition unit on hearth. Insert Phillips screwdriver into hole at right corner (3). Turn tightening bolt clockwise until tension is felt. Now, ensure that unit is in place by pushing down and back at corners. Tighten bolt further until unit is secure on hearth. (NOTE: if unit is not secure and tightening bolt will not turn further, then loosen bolt, remove unit and move adjustment hook to next hole. Now reinstall unit.) CAUTION: IT IS POSSIBLE TO TIGHTEN BOLT TOO MUCH CAUSING ENDS TO FLARE OUT CAUSING LOSS OF GRIP .
For longer hearths, purchase the OPTIONAL Length Extension: 24" Length Extension (metal backing and pad)
