The TracPort Dash 500 requires 2 StarPorts pre-fitted to the surface or rail it will be mounted on, if these StarPorts are at 100mm (4") centres the pre-drilled mounting holes on the TracPort Dash 500 can be used.
Drilling holes in TracPort [A]:
If the StarPorts on your vessel are not at 100mm (4") centres you will need to drill new mounting holes for the adapters.
Remove end cap screws and take off the end cap [B] from one end, then loosen the screws on the front of the StarPorts and remove enough StarPorts [C] to give access to the TracPort surface, mark and centre punch new drilling points at the same centres as your StarPorts.
Using a 6.5mm (1/4") drill bit, drill through the TracPort, then countersink the holes on the inside, ready for the countersunk screw head.
Fitting the adaptors [D]:
The two supplied adapters come with nuts inserted. Thread the plastic washers onto the screws before inserting bolts through the TracPort and screwing loosely into the adaptors. Place the adaptors into your StarPorts, and then tighten the screws using the Phillips screwdriver.
Fitting the optional Infill Extrusion [E]
The TracPort infill strip is used to trim the extrusion and reduce fouling.
Once your accessories have been mounted, use a sharp knife, scissors or a guillotine to cut strips of infill to length and press them firmly into the extrusion from the front, not slide in from the end.
