As the seasons change and we prepare for colder weather it’s a great time to do some simple maintenance to ensure the longevity & safety of your DockHinge.
- Mounting Hardware: Check that your bolts & nuts are complete and secure, your wood or aluminum backing are solid and that the backing plates are free from damage.
- Actuating Bolt: A few drops of marine-grad lubrication (or even vegetable oil) on the actuating bolt will ensure it runs through the Hitch easily.
- M10 Fasteners: Using a #6 Metric Allen Key, you can gently tighten your fasteners on the sides of the Hinge. These are not to be removed but can be checked. We use Loctite to secure this fasten.
- Patented Bushing: A quick inspection to make sure all is well.
