Note - A complete, illustrated "Installation Guide" will be sent with your top.
  • Carefully unpack your T-Topless™/Montauk-T-Topless™ (20 minutes):

  • Install the T-Toplesss™/Montauk-T-Topless™ (30-45 minutes):
    1. You'll need a 5/6" Hex Wrench, a Medium Phillips Screwdriver and a 7/16" Box End Wrench
    2. Lay top upside down on padded cooler in front of boat, with legs facing up, such that the leg's lower pivots are near the top of the windshield grab rails,
    3. Install front clamshell "Split Jaw Slides" on windshield grab rails, approx, 50-55" above floor using 3/16" hex wrench,
    4. Align front legs into pivot point on these Split Jaw Slides and insert 1/4-20 bolts and nuts using Phillips screwdriver and 7/16" box end wrench,
    5. Install rear legs pivots on rear windshield grab rails, or deck-hinge fittings attached to rear of console,
    6. Rotate top up carefully and align rear legs with these fittings,
    7. Adjust jaw-slides on frame at top of Rear-Legs fore/aft and clamp-on split-jaw-slides at bottom of Rear-Legs up/down in order to level the top and produce a stable, wide-based "A" shape.

  • Lace the Canvas (30-40 minutes):
    1. If the top is off the boat, position the top so you can reach both sides easily, by positioning the top:
      • hanging in the air vertically from one end or a side,
      • in place on the boat (working over your head can be tiring however), or
      • with the end of the top on a table so you can reach underneath.
    2. Attach the canvas loosely using 6 to 8 "zip-ties" pulled through grommets near the corners and around frame. Once lined up, tighten, but not too tight.
    3. Start in the center at the front (if possible) (Front/Middle on most T-Tops, T-Topless™, Montauk-T-Topless™ & Flats-Top™; Rear/Middle on the Shadow™ & Montauk-Shadow™),
    4. You want to end up with the lacing running under the canvas between grommets in order to turn the edges of the canvas down to shed water,
    5. Lace the canvas to the frame (important to reverse over/under from left to right side to avoid kinking):
      1. Lace to the Left:
        1. Start lacing through the TOP of 1st grommet,
        2. Run lacing under canvas and up through the next grommet to the Left,
        3. Run lacing UNDER frame tubing and OVER the top of the frame tubing,
        4. Run lacing back through the TOP of same grommet,
        5. Repeat at the next grommet to the Left until finished,
      2. Lace to the Right (reverse under/over bar sequence):
        1. Start lacing through the TOP of 1st grommet at the center,
        2. Run lacing under canvas and up through the next grommet to the Right,
        3. Run lacing OVER frame tubing and UNDER the top of the frame tubing,
        4. Run lacing back through the TOP of same grommet,
        5. Repeat at the next grommet to the Right until finished.
    6. Pull all canvas lacing tight,
    7. Adjust lacing to center the canvas in the frame side-to-side and fore-and-aft,
    8. Pull all canvas lacing tight, but do NOT over-tighten! The canvas should have a snug fit with the edge having a smooth straight appearance. Do not over-tighten to the point of "smiley's" between grommets (this may void your warranty),
    9. Loop the "tag ends" through the last eyelet at each end 2 or 3 times,
    10. Tie the ends in a bow, then tie the loops of the bow in a square knot,
    11. Cut the loose "tag ends" of the lacing to about 3" and burn the ends to prevent unravelling.
    12. Weave these "tag ends" into the lacing for a finished look.

  • Install Light Wiring (15-45 minutes):
    1. Locate or drill a hole through the console to pull the jacketed wiring pig-tail (included) through to inside your console,
    2. Pull the wiring pig-tail through,
    3. Behind your dash, locate the wire that feeds the Anchor (ANC) and Navigation (NAV) white light (typically Grey or Blue with a Black Stripe) and attach the Red (+) wire to it, ref: American Boat and Yacht Council Wiring Standard Colors & Use,
    4. Attach the Black (-) wire to ground (possibly the tachometer center bolt),
    5. Connect the top's wires to the lead through the splash-proof pin-connectors already attached to the the cables,
    6. Zip tie the jacketed wires along the windshield grab rail with zip ties (included) and trim them flush, providing some room at the top to fold the top down without pinching the wires.
