Fitting the LeverGlide ™ system

Fitting the LeverGlide ™ system is very straightforward - simply take your stretcher out of the boat, remove the old t-bolts and thumbscrews, and assemble the LeverGlide ™ components in the order shown in the downloadable instructions.

You will need to ensure the screws holding the channels down in your boat lie flat, as the LeverGlide ™ slide spring runs along the inside of the channel. If needed, you can replace your existing bolts and screws with countersunk versions from our online shop.

The LeverGlide ™ system fits the current square toothed ("nogged") and shark-toothed channels. To check whether your stretcher fittings are compatible, please refer to the Guide to LG2011.
