The FP-89 floor plate assembly is manufactured with a removable center section which
can be replaced in the event that the internal threads are damaged. Upon original
installation of the floor plates or replacement of the threaded sections, be sure that the
replacement threaded sections are installed very tightly using a thread-locking sealant to
prevent easy removal or tampering.
1) Locate and mark the center locations of the floor plates using the layout diagram
in the equipment instruction sheet. Re-check all center locations for accuracy
before installing the floor plates.
2) Using the 1 3/8” wood drill bit, drill a hole in the wood floor and the wood sub
floor down to the concrete base.
3) Drill a counter-bored hole 3 ¼” with a depth of ¼”. This may be done by using a
router and a template. A template can be made from a masonite or a thick piece
of plastic. Make a hole in the template material so that when the router is used
with it, the counter-bore diameter is 3 ¼”. Use a scrap board for practice and
checking the outcome of the hole before cutting the actual surface.
4) Center the template over the 1 3/8” diameter hole. When making the counterbored hole, keep pressure on the template at all times. This will keep the template
from slipping and the wood floor around the hole from splintering. Do not set the
depth of the router at ¼” immediately. Gradually work down to the depth at
which the floor plate is just flush with the surface of the floor. Check the depth
by placing the floor plate into the hole several times to be sure that the hole is not
too deep. When installed, the floor plate must be perfectly flush with the top
surface of the floor.
5) Screw the ½” bolt with the nut into the bottom of the floor plate. Adjust the bolts
so it will reach ½” to ¼” from the bottom of the hole when the floor plate is in
place. Tighten the nut against the floor plate bottom to lock the bolt into place.
Tighten the nut against the floor plate bottom to lock the bolt into place. In some
cases, the bolt supplied with the fp-89 unit will not reach to the bottom of the hole
in the cement; if this happens, a longer bolt or threaded rod should be used to
insure reaching the bottom.
6) Next, completely remove the dust from the hole by using a vacuum cleaner, air
compressor, or battery filler.
7) Fill the hole with water. Scrub the sides and bottom with a stiff brush, such as a
bottle brush. This is very important.
8) Remove excess water and any loose particles with a rag or other absorbent
material. Leave the hole clean and uniformly damp.
9) Mix the anchor bolt cement in a clean container.
Note: mix no more cement than you can use within 10 min. Mix cement
with water to form a thick paste. Let stand for about a minute. Stir
thoroughly. At this point he mixture will become more fluid like.
Do not add sand, gravel, or other foreign substances to the cement. These weaken
the cement and affect the setting.
Do not add too much water or re-temper cement, which has begun to set up, in the
container with additional water. This will result in failure of the cement to attain
the proper strength.
10) Turn a ½” bolt into the floor plate enough to hold it securely. Pour the cement
mixture into the hole until it is about ¾ full. Dip the floor plate into water in
order to wet the outer surface, but do not let any water get inside. Holding the
floor plate by the ½” bolt, slowly lower it into the hole until the top plate is seated
properly. The top of the plate should be flush with the floor. Excess cement
should flow around the top plate. If not, more cement should be added. Scrape
the excess cement from around the floor plate with a putty knife or scraper.
Remove the ½” bolt.
11) Using a 5/32” drill bit, drill four holes in the wood floor, 2 1/8” deep to receive
the tapping screws. Use the four holes in the top of the plate for guide holes for
drilling. Turn the wood screws in making sure that they are straight and seated
12) Allow 24 hours from time of installation for complete setting. After 24 hours,
apparatus may be set up and used with the floor plates.
