When you receive your Manta Racks in the mail, you will see that out of the box, it only takes 4 screws for each holder to be assembled. Your order comes with two holders because paddleboards and kayaks can be over 10ft in length.
We made the process of assembling these 4 screws as easy as possible and your box comes with an instruction guide inside. The racks come with your chosen color pad already installed as well as the board’s bungie strap to the rigid support bar. Once you have the screws mounted tightly in place, simply insert your rack into your quality fishing rod holder. (See images)
The design at the bottom of the rod of the rack, has a plus sign tapered cut to rest on the locking pin at the bottom of the rod holder. If your rod holder is too short or not a quality part, please look at our shop page and find a quality rod holder for your boat. If your rod holder is deeper than the rod of the rack, you can find an extender and an extender tool to match the length of the system to secure in place.
You will see a pin on the rack that you pull out to swivel the racks top to hold the board at the angle of your gunwale. After you adjust your racks swivel angle, put your board(s) on the rack and secure them with the bungie strap going over one board each and slip the end plastic ball of the bungie, under the designed cut notch so the bungie cord is going through the slit.
