Step 1: Ensure the concrete slab is level.
The Insta-Footing plate must be installed on clean and level concrete. If the concrete is not level, a non-shrink leveling grout must be installed first in order for the plate to sit on a level surface and evenly distribute the loads to the concrete floor slab.
Step 2: Position plate under location of the post to be installed.
Step 3: Install post into plate.
Use 16d common nails or 16d x 2-1/2 joist hanger nails into all available nail holes.Do not install bolts into the 1/2″ pilot hole on the post connector.
Step 4: Secure plate to floor
Use either two 1/2″ diameter by 2.5″ long concrete expansion anchors or two concrete anchor screws or two powder driven nails.
