LIGHTHOUSE ANCHORING INSTRUCTIONS:
WOODEN BOAT DOCK OR DECK: Screw through the wooden base of the lighthouse with galvanized screws or lag bolts into any solid wooden foundation.
GARDEN OR YARD: Pre-drill two 3/8" pilot holes into the wooden base of the lighthouse. Dig a hole 4" deep and approximately 6-8" wider than the base diameter of your lighthouse. Mix 2 bags of Sak-Crete concrete with water (per the directions on the bag). Allow at least 24 hrs for the concrete to harden. Center the lighthouse on the concrete pad and place two pencil marks through the pilot holes of the wooden base. Remove the lighthouse and use a ﾽ" masonry bit and drill two holes approximately 3" in depth. Embed the 3/8" anchor nuts in the concrete and attach the lighthouse using 3" galvanized lag bolts and washers.
