Installation Instructions for VH Series Vertical / Horizontal Consoles SWA-HD (Optional) available in 6, 8 or 10” lengths) 3/8 x 1.5” hex bolt from top down, secured w/ 3/8” lock nut beneath. 2.5” x .25” Steel spacer 2.5” nylon washer 2.5” nylon washer & 2.5” steel washer on underside of console top VH-6005 VH-7506 Control-Com VH-Series Consoles are made of powder coated aluminum for long life, light weight, and structural rigidity. They are designed to fit between the bucket seats of Chevy Impala, Tahoe, Dodge Charger, Ford Crown Victoria, Explorer, Expedition and many other vehicles. Control-Com Consoles accommodate most vehicle equipment and allow the mounting of Mobile Data Terminals. Control-Com VH Series Consoles allow easy access to equipment as a result of their sloping face. Control-Com Consoles allow equipment to be mounted in almost any order. However, due to the slope of the face, larger items, such as stand-alone radios, are best mounted towards the top of the console. Smaller items, like sirens, work best toward the bottom. The installer and/or user is encouraged to try different equipment layouts before installing the console in the vehicle. CAUTION: Extreme care must be taken to ensure that equipment is not mounted in the air bag deployment zone as defined by the vehicle manufacturer. 1. Unpack the console from its box, carefully checking for brackets in the packing material. 2. Determine which power plug knock-outs are needed and punch them out using a socket (or similar tool) slightly smaller than the knock-out. Be sure to back up the console wall before tapping the socket with a hammer. If the hole is to be used for wires and cables be sure to use a snap bushing or grommet to protect from abrasion. 3. Determine the location of equipment to be mounted in the console and the width of mounting brackets required. 4. Bolt the brackets to the side of the equipment using lock washers, if needed, to prevent rotation of equipment (fig. 1). Then screw the bracket to the inside of the console using the 8-32 x 3/8” screws provided (fig. 2). Be sure to leave room for wires and antenna cables at the bottom of the console. Fig. 1 Fig. 2 IMPORTANT: Due to the many variations in equipment, Control-Com brackets may require custom fitting. Remember to leave enough slack in cables and wires to allow service removal from the top side. 5. MOUNTING OPTIONS: Determine the best location for mounting the console in your vehicle based on equipment accessibility and visibility. CAUTION: Be sure not to drill or screw into anything (wires, lines, etc.) under the carpet, floor or transmission hump when mounting the console. Be sure that any wiring exiting the console is protected from sharp edges by flex guard wire loom or a similar material. Later models of Ford Crown Victoria, Chevy Impala, and many others have plastic rear heating vents on the transmission hump. When securing the console in these vehicles, seat bolt mounting brackets should be used. BASE PLATE MOUNTING: Lund Base Plates (sizes 16”, 22” & 28.5”), with seat bolt or universal mounting, can be attached to most vehicle transmission humps providing an extremely solid mounting platform. Console can then be bolted directly to the base plate leaving room for extra equipment. 6. COMPUTER / KEYBOARD MOUNTING: Refer to instructions supplied with docking stations, keyboard trays and mounts for proper installation. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Lund Industries, Inc. has no control of the configuration or dimensions of equipment installed, nor the configuration of vehicles or their air bag deployment zones. Likewise, we have no control over the installation of the Control-Com Consoles and Mounting Systems. The sole responsibility for keeping equipment out of air bag deployment zones is the users. Users are urged to check all installations against the vehicle manufacturer’s definition of their airbag deployment zone. Lund Industries, Inc. assumes no liability for non-compliant installations. If any problems or questions are encountered in the installation of equipment or Control-Com components, please contact Lund at (800) 504-1460 for assistance.
