assembled in proper
upright position.
Step 1
Be sure to read and familiarize yourself with the overall assembly process and
instructions in this manual before beginning. It may be helpful to have someone assist
you with the assembly.
Fig. 1
Tools Required: #2 or #3 Philips Screwdriver (or standard slotted screwdriver),
and Adjustable Wrench.
Find a clean, level, preferably carpeted location to assemble your IR Heater. A flat
piece of cardboard will works as well. Unpack and identify all components listed on page
3 of this manual and lay them out on the carpeted floor or cardboard piece.

Step 2
Attach mounting bracket for head unit to curved upper arm using 4 threaded bolts.
The bracket base will fit inside the upper arm. Securely tighten all bolts.
Note: See Fig. 1 for proper orientation of bracket to upper arm.
The bracket will only align properly to one correct end of the arm.
Beginning at the mounting bracket end, thread the entire electrical cord from the IR
head unit & tilt switch component thru the curved upper arm. Attach head unit bracket
to the mounting bracket using 4 threaded bolts. Apply all bolts loosely for easier alignment & positioning. Now attach tilt switch box to mounting bracket using 2 bolts. Check
to make sure all components fit together properly, then tighten all bolts securely.
NOTE: Junction box and electrical cord coming out of the head unit & tilt
switch MUST be facing downward when installed. See Fig. 2 for proper position.
