  • Bolts & Nuts: All of our bolts & nuts come with a course thread & galvanized.
  • Pile Caps: To ensure that your pile caps will fit EACH PILE, measure each piling individually. The sizes of the piles WILL VARY.
  • Inflatable Vinyl Fenders: The most accurate way to select the right fender for your boat is to survey your docking area to find out what fender is in use for the same size and weight as your boat, in terms of fender dimensions and quantities, and use that as a guideline. The recommended inflation is 2 psi.
  • Dock & Post Bumper Guards: Recommended Attachments - To best install your Dock & Post Bumper, drive 1" stainless steel pneumatic staples, 1.25" stainless steel #8 or #10 with oval or flat head Phillips screws with stainless finishing washers, or 1.5" large-headed stainless steel aluminum nails through each tab every 3 to 4 inches.
