    Figure 2: Place Bracket

  2. Run the bolt with pinhole downward through the buoy frame so that the bottom sticks out through the center of the cage. Place a lock washer and the castle nut onto the bolt. Use a pair of 1-1/8” or adjustable wrenches to tighten the castle nut so that the cage cannot spin around the bolt and the pinhole aligns with the ridges in the nut. A large amount of force is needed to properly tighten the nut. Do NOT install the cotter pin yet.
