Category II bracket
Category II brackets are designed to hold the beacon securely in place.
The beacon must be manually deployed. The bracket can be mounted on
a vertical flat surface with beacon antenna up or on a horizontal flat
surface facing skyward. This location must be easily accessible in order
to manually deploy the beacon or to perform the required maintenance
and functionality tests. Typical locations include near the helm station or
just inside the companionway door.
™ Category II bracket has four pre-drilled screw holes to
use for securing the bracket to a flat surface. Remove the beacon from
the bracket. To do this while holding the assembly, lift the latch to release
bracket pressure from the beacon. The beacon will slide up and out of
the bracket. On either side of the bracket are release tabs.
Simultaneously depress each tab to separate the bracket from the
mounting block. The mounting block can be held in place to mark the
placement of the screw holes or you can use the mounting template
provided. The use of #8 pan head stainless steel fasteners and washers
(not included) is recommended. Be sure to confirm that fasteners will not
contact any wires or plumbing before drilling pilot holes.
