Find the appropriate placement of footrest for your size by sitting in the boat and marking where your feet are. Mark the length and copy to other side. Measure back about 6" from each mark and mark again. This puts your foot in the middle of the extrusion and gives you better adjustability. If you are particularly short or tall you may want to adjust placement if other people are to use your kayak. It is recommended that you now take your extrusion piece (23.5") and test to make sure it doesn't run into the bow bulkhead, before drilling any holes (see diagram)
Place ¼-20x3/8" truss phil bolts in holes from the outside and on the inside of the boat use silicone around bolts for a better water seal. Place extrusion, with brass nuts placed in holes, over the bolt ends on the inside of the boat and tighten the nuts down firmly.
(NOTE: If you do not have a rudder, attach the loop end of the footrest strap under the stern brass nut to hold footrest securely for bracing.)
