INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
HANDRAILS ARE OPTIONAL ON ALL 1/2 & 3/4 METER STANDS
HANDRAILS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL 1 METER STANDS
1.
Bolt the handrail bracket assemblies on the inside of the stand top platform as show in Fig.3 for each of the four
locations.
2.
Insert the end of the handrail into the bracket through the holes so the holes line up with the bracket bolt holes.
3.
Secure hex nut with 40 - 50 ft-lbs.
4.
When installing or reinstalling diving board after handrails have been installed on diving stand, be sure to use
the two 18" Rubber Mounting Pads (#42) between bottom of diving board and top of stand (See Fig.2 or 3).
This shims the board up so that it will not hit the 3/8" X 5-1/2" Hex Bolt and damage the bottom of the board.

IMPORTANT: The distance for setting the front bolt of the jig “S” from the waters edge is valid only if the
minimum water depth is maintained at the tip of the board noted at point A in ANSI/NSPI-5 2003, Figure 3 and
Table 1. If minimum water depth is not maintained the distance “S” must be adjusted accordingly.
*WA DIMENSION IS VALID ONLY IN CONJUNCTION WITH MIN. DEPTH AT POINT A (SEE ANSI/NSPI-5 2003
FIGURE 3 AND TABLE 1) FOR POOL TYPE.
NOTE: When coping is used do not set front bolt of jig closer than 3" from the back edge of coping.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
BE SURE CONCRETE DECK SURROUNDING ANCHOR JIG COMPLIES WITH MINIMUM DIMENSIONS AS SHOWN
IN FIG.1 FOR POOL TYPE AND BOARD TO BE USED.
1.
READ CAREFULLY the following, and pages A through E, which have been extracted from ANSI/NSPI-5 2003 and
pay particular attention to Figure 3 and Table 1 set forth therein.
2.
The Steel Meter six-bolt Jig should be set in accordance with the INSTALLATION CHART above and Fig.1, with the
two" RED" capped bolts closest to the pool. This will give the desired minimum overhang. Board must be placed at
deep end of pool on centerline.
CAUTION: Before pouring concrete around Jig, check the bolt pattern of Jig to Fig.3. It is possible that they have become
misaligned through shipping and handling.
3.
Make sure bolts project out of concrete 1-1/2" with ample concrete depth below Jig. Refer to Fig.1 for minimum deck
thickness, width and length.
4.
When finishing deck surface, maintain level deck where Jig bolts project out so that the stand makes uniform contact
with deck surface.
5.
Before mounting stand, chisel away any excess concrete that may have built up around Jig bolts and remove the red
and yellow bolt caps
6.
Place stand over Jig bolts and secure according to Fig.2 or 3, depending upon mounting kit used. Tighten ANCHOR
hex nuts. TIGHTENING SCHEDULE on page 3 when tightening all MOUNTING and ANCHOR hex nuts.
7.
With Steel Meter Stand properly secured, select board size according to Chart 1. The installation sequence is as
follows:
(I) Meter Fulcrum (Fig.2)
(II) Handrails (Fig.4 on page 4)
(III) Rear Step and Board (Fig.2 on 3)
8.
The Rear Step and Board may be installed with either the Residential Mounting Kit (Fig.2) or the Commercial
Mounting Kit (Fig.3). Tighten MOUNTING hex nuts.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
BE SURE CONCRETE DECK SURROUNDING ANCHOR JIG COMPLIES WITH MINIMUM DIMENSIONS AS SHOWN
IN FIG. 1 FOR POOL TYPE AND BOARD TO BE USED.
1.
Carefully read pages F through I in this booklet, which contains the applicable articles of the ANSI/NSPI-1 2003
STANDARD FOR PUBLIC SWIMMING POOLS.
2.
The Steel Meter six-bolt Jig should be set in accordance with the INSTALLATION CHART above and Fig.1, with the
two" RED" capped bolts closest to the pool. This will give the desired minimum overhang. Board must be placed at
deep end of pool on centerline.
CAUTION: Before pouring concrete around Jig, check the bolt pattern of Jig to Fig.3. It is possible that they have become
misaligned through shipping and handling.
3.
Make sure bolts project out of concrete 1-1/2" with ample concrete depth below Jig. Refer to Fig.1 for minimum deck
thickness, width and length.
4.
When finishing deck surface, maintain level deck where Jig bolts project out so that the stand makes uniform contact
with deck surface.
5.
Before mounting stand, chisel away any excess concrete that may have built up around Jig bolts and remove the red
and yellow bolt caps
6.
Place stand over Jig bolts and secure according to Fig.2 or 3, depending upon mounting kit used. Tighten ANCHOR
hex nuts. TIGHTENING SCHEDULE on page 3 when tightening all MOUNTING and ANCHOR hex nuts.
7.
With Steel Meter Stand properly secured, select board size according to Chart 1. The installation sequence is as
follows:
(I) Meter Fulcrum (Fig.2)
(II) Handrails (Fig.4 on page 4)
(III) Rear Step and Board (Fig.2 or 3)
8.
The Rear Step and Board may be installed with either the Residential Mounting Kit (Fig.2) or the Commercial
Mounting Kit (Fig.3). Tighten MOUNTING hex nuts.

5.3 Structural design. The structural design shall be in
accordance with accepted engineering practices.
6.1.1 There shall be no protrusions,
extensions, means of entanglement, or obstructions in

temperatures, the pool shell and appurtenances, piping,
filter system, pump and motor, and other components
shall be designed and constructed to facilitate
protection from damage due to freezing.
6.2 Allowable construction tolerances. These
construction tolerances are not applicable to Class A
pools.
5.5 Surface condition. The surfaces within the pool
intended to provide footing for users shall have a slipresisting surface and shall not cause injury to the feet
during normal use.
5.6 Colors and finishes. The colors, patterns, or
finishes of the pool interior shall not obscure objects or
surfaces within the pool.
