STEP ONE
www.newenglandarbors.com
Assemble the Arch System
NOTE: There are locking tabs located at the ends of each
rafter. Once inserted and pushed into the routed holes, they
will lock into place and cannot be removed.
1
Insert arches into arch keystone ensuring they terminate
flush to the internal connector.
2
Fasten the top of the arches to the keystone insert by
installing 2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm.) screws into the two flanges on
either side of the top of the insert.
3
Invert the arch system and install two screws 2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm.)
from the bottom of the keystone into the two flanges on
either side of the bottom of the insert. This will connect the
bottom of the arches to the insert.
4
Seal the bottom hole on keystone by inserting the bottom
plate as provided.
5
Install the top cap on the arch keystone. Ensure keystone
cap is pushed down firmly so the cap locks into position.
6
Repeat for other arch.
7
Insert arch rafters (8) into the holes on the arches until they
bottom out inside the arches. There are “locking tabs” located
at each end of these rafters that once inserted into the holes
will lock into place.
8
Fit opposite arch system over rafters.

You have Three Options to Complete this Step.
(All purchased separately)
OPTION ONE - If Your Arbor:
1
• is going to be installed with fencing or a gate
• is located in a high wind or hurricane area
• is located in ground conditions that are not level
Consider Using:
A - 4x4 Professional Post Extension Kit (30 in./76.2 cm. long), (Kit of 4)
• Purchase from New England Arbors, www.newenglandarbors.com
• Recommended to be installed in concrete footings
• Follow instructions included with the kit
- or B - 4 x 4 x 8 Long Wood Post (4)
(Posts have been extended with 4x4 Professional Post Extension Kit)
• Purchase separate from your local lumberyard
• Recommended to be installed in concrete footing
22 in.

• Instructions are included with the kit
OPTION THREE - If Your Arbor:
(Measurements shown are inside to inside of posts)
• is going to be installed onto pre-existing concrete or wood surface
Consider Using:
4 x 4 Surface Mount Kit
• Purchase from New England Arbors, www.newenglandarbors.com
• Follow instructions included with the kit

33 in.
83.8 cm.
(Assuming posts have been extended)
10 in.
25.4 cm.
Arbors must be well secured to prevent tipping over from
wind load, etc.
1
Move the side panels to their final location (you will need a helper).
2
When you have identified the location of each post, as indicated
by the measurements on the first page of these instructions,
mark the positions of the posts, then move the panels aside.
3
Excavate four holes approx 33 in. (83.8 cm.) deep. The location and
excavation of these four holes is the most critical step and should
be completed with care. The depth of these holes will allow the
post extension (if chosen as option) joint to be hidden 3 in. (7.6 cm.)
under the ground.
4
Carefully move the side panels back into position and level
both horizontal and vertically.
5
Check your measurements to confirm posts are placed
correctly to receive arch system. THIS IS A CRITICIAL STEP.
* Do not backfill the holes with cement at this stage.
