Hi. I have a new dog guard and the plastic roof brackets but no instructions as to how to fit.

Is there a , "how to"?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I found the little wing bolt that attaches the guard to the bracket to be too feeble. It constantly came undone, so I ended up screwing a self tapper into the bracket instead.

Thanks guys.

The Paddock instructions are perfect.

As of some Ebay purchases, not all is there!

I have the 4x Allen head 8mm bolts and washers.

I don't have the 2x metal plates or the Rivnuts.

Are the 2 x metal plates just for templates?

Can you point me in the direction of the correct Rivnuts.

Thanks.

I've got the plastic bits but no dog guard, presumably from when plod owned it, and the metal plates must be templates as they aren't there. You wil need the rivnuts though. If the bolts are M8, then an eBay search for M8 Rivnuts comes up with plenty of people that will sell you the nuts but you'll also need to buy the tool to insert them. Alternatively unless you have a very strong dog, these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/372228875618 should be good enough and don't need a tool to fit them, just a bolt and washer.

I have used them before.

Decided to invest in the proper tool. Son is a mechanic so will pass on to him when used.

Thanks again Richard.....
