CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Docking Point Maintenance
NOTE
In time docking points wear, causing the mating detachable accessory to become loose and rattle. The fit can be tightened using the following procedure.
  1. Mark each docking point to indicate the current top position.
  2. Remove the docking hardware.
  3. Remove all existing threadlocking agent from the docking point fastener and mounting hole threads. Apply new Loctite 243 - Blue to the screw threads.
  4. Rotate the docking points clockwise approximately 45 degrees from the previous position.
  5. Tighten the docking hardware to the torque value indicated in the installation procedures.
This procedure can be repeated up to three times before replacement of the docking points is recommended.
