There are two options for installing your surface mount base in the ground based on the type of surface you are installing the base in. Option 1 utilizes concrete anchors for concrete surfaces and option 2 utilizes an asphalt anchor kit for asphalt surfaces.

Option 1 – Concrete Anchors

  1. Hammer drill with ⅝″ (16mm) bit
  2. Small hammer
  3. ¾″ socket and ratchet wrench
  4. ½″ socket and ratchet wrench

Installation instructions:

  1. Place base on surface, align to desired position. Using the base as a template, mark the four (4) holes to establish pattern for drill.
  2. Drill four (4) holes 3″ (75mm) deep using a ⅝″ (16mm) drill bit. Clean holes.
  3. Using a small hammer gently tap the anchors into the holes.
  4. Place base over the anchors. Put washer onto lag screw. Start lag screw through base hole into anchor. Use ¾″ wrench to tighten lag screw snug into base.
  5. Insert your sign post to the base and secure the post by tightening the two bolts on the side of the base using the ½″ socket.

Option 2 – Asphalt Anchors
