Australian Manufacturer Direct Special Offer
Tuesday September 26, 2017 between 9.30am to 9.30pm
the special offer is further down this page.
There are two types of Vehicle Fixing Kits for both the mk2 Hide Away Safe (smaller) and mk3 Hide Away Safe (larger), this page explains how to install both and the suggested fastener types used to install both types of Vehicle Fixing Kits:
When installing a Vehicle Fixing Kit you must first check what is underneath or behind the position of the installation before you drill the first hole to ensure your chosen fastener will not penetrate for example, the petrol tank or electrical wiring.
When installing the Steel Vehicle Fixing Kit first, remove the Docking Station from it by undoing the high tensile nuts and washers securing it. Then install the Vehicle Fixing Kit to your Vehicle with Type 17 Wood Tek Screws full thread 5/16” hex head drive, further information in number 7 near the end of this page.
Finally bolt the Docking Station back onto the Steel Vehicle Fixing Kit by placing the washers then screwing the high tensile nuts back onto the Steel Vehicle Fixing Kit clinch studs.
When you receive the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit a Docking Station has already been affixed to it. Do not remove it. All that is required to install it to your Vehicle is:
NB: Some Vehicle makes / models have punched out electrical wiring access holes in the Steel parcel shelf frame which may coincide with a chosen installation location. Simply bypass that location and place your fastener as close as possible to the punched out hole.
You may also use existing screw hole positions in the front of the Docking Station if any are more convenient to use. To do this remove the existing screw and replace it with your chosen fastener. Use your chosen fastener through the Marine Ply at the rear.
Note: Different Vehicle makes and models may require different lengths of Marine Ply. If the Marine Ply supplied is a little too long simply cut it to the required length.
Depending on how you intend to screw in the fastener (either by hand or with a drill with the appropriate screwdriver bit in it) depends on what you do next.
The following refers to fitting in the boot and applies to both Marine Ply and Steel Vehicle Fixing Kits.
You must affix to a Steel floor pan or chassis.
Affixing to cardboard or thin timber floor or to a polystyrene infill, as are in some Vehicle makes and models, is not acceptable under any circumstance.
When affixing to a totally flat surface with full Steel support underneath and to the floor with carpet or rubber matting eg. under front seat, then the Marine Ply maybe able to be substituted in some vehicles with either.
The following is a suggestion about the fastener type used to install the both styles of Vehicle Fixing Kits:
Type 17 Wood Tek Screws full thread 5/16” hex head drive. We suggest Wood Tek Screws instead of Metal Tek Screws because Wood Tek Screws have a higher pitch between the threads than Metal Tek Screws and has less chance of stripping when screwing them in.
We highly recommend placing a fastener in every pre-drilled hole in the Steel Vehicle Fixing Kit and when installing the Marine Ply Vehicle Fixing Kit under the parcel shelf or to the floor / chassis follow number 4 above.
