Installation

 

Congratulations! You are about to FIND YOUR FISH!

  • The most important thing about Fishbones installation is curing time and pressure. Please read all these instructions and follow the videos to be sure that your Fishbones are properly installed. 

PLEASE REFER TO OUR INSTALL VIDEO ON YOUTUBEhttps://youtu.be/K168NixPf2w

BEFORE BEGINNING--Ensure that the edges of your front pad are free of “mash-up” damage from slamming into curbs or walls. If the wood on your front pad is banged up or has “mash-up” damage, use a metal file or heavy grade sandpaper to smooth it out along the edges. USE THE PROVIDED ALCOHOL SCRUBS TO CLEAN OFF THE EDGES OF YOUR FRONT PAD INCLUDING SCRUBBING THE GRIP TAPE.

1) Carefully remove the backing to the Snap N Flo. DO NOT TOUCH IT!

2)  The TOP of your Fishbone should align with the top edge of your board (See Fig. 1).

3)  For the SIDE EDGE (The Long Edge): Using the included FILET CARD, hold it flat against your rail, with some area of the card protruding above the rail. THE PROPER PLACEMENT OF THE FISHBONE IS WITH THE SPINE FLUSH AGAINST THE CARD. In this way, it is also flush with your board’s rail. Be PRECISE about positioning. 

4) CURING: Press down along the Fishbones above the adhesive with as much pressure as you can with your hands for several minutes. Place some weight (books, case of beer, etc.) on top of them to keep pressure applied. LET THEM CURE LIKE THIS FOR 24 HOURS IN NORMAL INSIDE TEMPERATURES (60°-80° F).

REMOVAL AND “HOT SWAP” OF FISHBONES:  https://youtu.be/6SGpjOpAZoU

1) REMOVAL: See Fig. 2. Use the Filet Card to “unzip” your Fishbones. Starting at the bottom (nearest your wheel), gently and slowly work the Filet Card in-between the Snap N Flo pieces. Use a gentle slicing motion while sliding the Filet Card upward and your Fishbones will “unzip.” You may find upon unzipping your Fishbone the first time that your Snap N Flo overhangs the edge of the grip a bit. You should run your thumb along the overhanging portion to press it down to the wood and solidify the connection.

2) DO NOT PULL OR PRY THE FISHBONES UP TO REMOVE THEM! The Snap N Flo attachment system can handle all sorts of lateral forces which is what makes them so solid under your feet. They cannot handle vertical prying from your hands—the glue can fail if you do this. ONLY USE THIS UNZIPPING METHOD—DO NOT PRY THEM OFF.

 3) AFFIXING YOUR FISHBONE TO YOUR SNAP N FLO: Place it gently into position on the board. PRESS all the edges until you feel the slight locking of the Snap N Flo.

 4) MAINTENANCE AND REMOVAL:

Your Fishbones are 3-D printed with a very durable material called PETG plastic. You can remove them and wash them in water if you wish. Water and a toothbrush can help you clean your Snap N Flo strips on your board if it collects dirt.

Additional Snap N Flo attachment strips are provided in your kit, and on our website for purchase.

Your SnapNFlo strips will degrade after 300-400 miles, just like grip tape. If your SnapNFlo strips begin to fail, use a heat gun to remove them from BOTH the board as well as the Fishbones. Replace with new SnapNFlo. Your kit comes with one extra set, and you may order additional sets at www.fishbones.life.
