The base is engineered to repair rusted poles up to 35 feet tall with 2.5 square feet of head surface area.
This means that at 35 feet tall and wind surface area of 2.5 feet, the bases will withstand 125 mph of wind.
How Does the Pole Repair Kit Attach to the Light Pole?
Our engineers have approved the use of a box bolt to attach the base to the pole.
Hold the large hex body with a wrench and tighten the smaller hex bolt with an impact or ratchet until the small hex breaks off at 57 ft/lbs of torque.
A box bolt works much like a rivet. It is inserted into the hole in the base and pole.
The outer shell is held constant when the inner bolt is tightened.
The expansion nut is pulled into the shell and the bolt expands inside the metal.
What Size Pole Does the Light Pole Repair Kit Fit?
The Pole Repair Kit is engineered for any 4 or 5 inch, round and square pole.
The pole anchor bolt circle for 4-inch poles must be within 8.75-11.5 inches with an anchor bolt no larger than 0.8127 inch.
For a 5-inch pole the bolt circle must fall inside 10.375-12.75 inches with an anchor bolt no larger than 1.25 inch.
Can My Pole be Repaired with the Light Pole Repair Kit?
The pole needs to be standing with good structural integrity above the hand hole.
