INTRODUCTION
The 2/3 METER DECK LEVEL DIVING STAND is designed for use on competitive or municipal pools. It
provides a safe, unique look with a minimal amount of deck space. Proper and complete assembly, use,
and maintenance are essential for proper operation and to reduce the risk of accident or injury.
**IMPORTANT**
Check entire box and inside all packing materials for parts. Before beginning assembly, read the
instructions and identify parts using the figures and parts listed in this document. It is critical that all
parts be carefully inspected by the installer prior to installation to ensure that no damage occurred in
transit and that a damaged part is not used. Proper installation cannot be overstressed, as an improper
installation voids S.R. Smith’s warranty and may affect the safety of the user.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
1. Refer to page 3 for correct placement of the DLS STAND, which is dependent on the type of
pool and the length of diving board that is used. Begin by setting the DLS STAND (item 1) in
concrete per local building codes. Excavate area required for concrete base. See FIG.’S 1 & 2 for
minimum dimensions of concrete surrounding the stand.
2. Ground the stand using provided grounding anchor, located on lower stand tube, per local
electrical building codes.
3. Check stand for height and check levelness in two directions, pour concrete. (Reinforcing rods
(rebar) are customer supplied, use #3 X 16” long minimum) FILL PIPE WITH CONCRETE
THROUGH HOLE IN TRAY.
4. Paint the diving stand using a high quality acrylic urethane enamel for a durable finish. Do not
begin assembly of the DLS STAND until mounting concrete is fully cured.
5. Place Plastic End Caps (item 18) over the ends of Fulcrum Assembly (item 2). Slide Fulcrum
Cover (item17) over fulcrum assembly. Place fulcrum assembly threaded studs through
appropriate slots in DLS-Stand (item 1). To ensure proper fulcrum positioning see TABLE 1.
Place 3/8” Flat Washer (item 3) over the fulcrum assembly treaded studs. Place 3/8” Lock
Washer (item 4) over the fulcrum assembly treaded studs. Place 3/8” Hex Nut (item 5) over the
fulcrum assembly treaded studs. After appropriate fulcrum position has been determined and set,
tighten hex nuts. See FIG. 3.

6. After Diving Board (item 11) has been selected, place Rubber Mounting Pad (item 13) onto
angle plate located on the top, heel end, of the DLS stand. Align holes of rubber mounting pad
with holes on DLS stand. Place diving board on top of rubber mounting pad and align holes of
each. Place another rubber mounting pad on top of the diving board. Place Top Mount Plate
(item 14) over rubber mounting pad and align holes to diving board. Place two (2) ½” UNC
CARRIAGE BOLTS (item 19) through holes in top mounting plate, rubber mounting pad, diving
board, lower mounting pad and DLS stand. Place two (2) 1/2" Lock Washers (item 12) and two
(2) ½” Hex Nuts (item 15) onto carriage bolts. Tighten hex nuts between 20 and 25 ft-lbs. for
fiberglass boards, and between 35 and 40 ft-lbs. for aluminum boards. DO NOT OVER
TIGHTEN! Place ½” Nut Caps (item 16) over hex nuts two (2) places. See FIG. 4.

The manufacturer of the diving equipment
shall specify minimum water envelopes for its
products. They may refer to the water envelope type
of their choice by dimensionally relating their
products to Point " A " on that water envelope. Point
" A " as shown in figure 1 is designated as the point
of origin on the water surface for the water envelope
dimension.
6.4 Water depths for swimming areas shall be a
minimum depth of 3 feet (91 cm) unless the authority
having jurisdiction specifies otherwise.
