Mark a hole on the frame for the threaded stud

Drill a 3/8” (9.5 mm) hole

Insert the 3” (76 mm) threaded stud into the hole

Place a lock nut on each side of the stud

Use two 9/16” wrenches to tighten the lock nuts

Place and tighten another lock nut onto the stud

Carefully screw the Transducer onto the stud (DO NOT tighten)

CAUTION: ONLY TIGHTEN THE TRANSDUCER USING HAND TOOLS!!!

Use a 9/16” wrench to tighten the brass nut against the lock nut

The Transducer can be mounted above or below the frame, depending on where it fits best
