What's Included & Tools You Will Need
IN THE BOX:
Left Center Right
Align Ramp Sections
- Facing your house, ensure that the ramp sections are in the correct order—left, center, right—paying attention to the angle of the ends.
Warning: Incorrect installation can cause debris to collect, impeding water flow. If you ordered additional 4-foot sections, they are to be treated as center sections for installation.
Flip Ramp Into Street
- Turn the ramp sections over into the street so that they are flat side down. If you have purchased a 3- piece set, please proceed to step 4.
- If you have additional center sections, the hardware from one side of that ramp must be removed.
- To remove excess hardware from one side, strike underneath the bolt head with the claw portion of your hammer and extract.
Bolt Sections Together
- Whether installing the ramp on a straight curb or a curved curb in a cul-de-sac, align all ramp sections together so they butt tightly end to end in a straight line.
- Then, standing on the section the bolt is being driven in to, hammer bolts into the adjacent ramp. Leave the bolt head at least 1/8” from the rubber. (Do not pound bolt head flush against the rubber.)
- Repeat until all pieces are adjoined.
- Taking care not to damage the bolt threads, pry each bolt up by pushing a flat head screwdriver between the rubber and threaded end of the bolt.
- Prying the bolt up in this way makes it easy to spin each nut onto the bolt with your fingers.
NOTE: Do not tighten. To allow flexibility in the joints the bolt should only protrude 1/4 inch beyond the nut.
Crimp Bolt Threads
- If you do not plan to add additional ramp sections or move to a different residence, we suggest using pliers to crimp down on 2 or 3 threads at the end of each bolt.
- This will flatten the threads, making it very difficult for the nuts be removed. This acts as a theft deterrent.
NOTE: Do NOT crimp bolt threads unless you're sure you don't want to expand your BRIDJIT ramp set.
Adjust As Needed
- To turn the ramp over, start at one end, lift the outward edge of the ramp up and toward the gutter.
- Keep flipping the top as you walk along the ramp, turning the entire ramp back over into the gutter and adjust as needed
Cul-de-sac instructions - With a person at one end of ramp and the other person with foot at a ramp connection, gently bend the ramps around the curvature to make a small opening at the top of each connection.
Straddle the ramp at the center. Pick up the ramp and lean back in the direction you want it to go.
