Place the squared ends of the belt together and nail the template into position, taking care that the plugs on the template are inserted between the belt ends. Bend the nails outwards to prevent the template rising from the belt surface. Punch the holes, using the appropriate size of special "RECO" straight sided Belt Punch.
Remove the template. Push the bolt ends through the punched holes ends through thge punched holes from the underside of the belt.
Place the top plates in position (users will find added assistance by employing the "RECO" Bolthorn) and apply the slotted nuts loosely by hand. Make sure that the plates are positioned accurately.
Run down each nut eveny with a "RECO" Brace or Hand Wrench.
Hammer the plates into the belt surface using a metal block placed across the fasteners and between the nuts. Once again re-tighten, using the special "RECO" Wrench until the top plate is fully bedded into the belt surface.
