area, discarding properly in a trash container, not into the storm sewer.
Center entire device in relation to the width of the driveway. After using BRIDJIT for a number
of days you may find a need to reposition right to left for easier maneuvering up and down your
driveway. (Just pull on one end or the other to reposition.)
Make sure all sections are in alignment and are butted tight together end to end as shown.
Â½ in. x 7 Â½ in. galvanized bolts from the center section(s) into and through the outer section
â€œdowel retaining areaâ€ with a hammer, until the bolt head is Â½ in from
retaining area rubber. (Take care to not drive the head of the bolt into the rubber,)
Lift each section up at the joint and have someone slide a 2x4 or any other 4â€ high
block under the ramp at the location of the joint as shown.
To protect the bolt threads, push a screwdriver down between the bolt and rubber as far
away from the end of the bolt as possible. Pry up on the threaded end of the bolt with a
screwdriver pushing down towards the center line of the ramp as shown.
Screw one of the provided nuts onto each bolt with your fingers until the bolt comes
just through the nut only. (No wrenches are required as the nuts will be held in place
by the ramp). Due to the tightness between the rubber and the bolt, the sections will
stay tight to each other as the ramp is used, but at the same time allow for adjustment
around and onto curved curbing, such as in cul-de-sacs.
Lifting up on the outer edge of the ramp, turn the entire device back to the original position into the gutter and position the upper edge of the ramp at the same elevation as the top of the curb as shown.
The sheer weight of the device keeps it in place, with little adjustment required over time. Any curvature of the curb and gutter will be taken care of, leaving small acceptable wedged openings between the sections.
When BRIDJIT is used in areas where routine street snow removal service is provided by municipalities, it may be wise to remove the BRIDJIT device during these times to prevent BRIDJIT from possibly being damaged.
Caution â€“ LIKE MANY OUTDOOR ITEMS WHEN FROZEN, DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE,THE BRIDJIT DEVICE CAN BECOME SLICK AND CARE MUST BE TAKEN.
IF YOU HAVE STORM DRAINS WITHIN THE CONFINES OF YOUR DRIVEWAY,
DO NOT RESTRICT THE FLOW OF WATER INTO THE STORM SEWER WITH THE
