We recommend the 10 Pack 2-Bolt for installation on top of Rubber Soft Play surfaces for the following reasons. 

  1. The 10 Pack 2-Bolt has been specifically designed for this application. 
  2. The bolt spacing is the same on every hold for easier anchor set-up and installation.
  3. The bolt depth is the same on every hold so that the same length bolt is used for every hold.
  4. There are 10 unique holds in this set that are children-friendly in relation to the comfortable rounded shapes and the skin-friendly texture.
  5. The 2-bolt attachment method ensures the hold will never spin.
  6. Hundreds of Commercial Designers and Installers have chosen this product. 
  7. There are available Cut Sheets and Installation Guides.

Here is the installation process. 

 

1. Pour your concrete slab/mound.

2. Drill and set all the concrete anchors. Use the actual climbing hold as your spacer. Every hold in this set has the same bolt dimensions, so you can use one grip to do that. We recommend a spacing of 18" apart in a staggered pattern.

3. Now slide the bolt through a metal sleeve(measures 1/2" OD steel tubing .035 - .040 wall thickness, ID 13/32"/.40625), and hand thread the bolt into the anchor. 

4. Spray everything with a mold release that will discourage the rubber from adhering to the metal.

5. Now install your Soft Play rubber surface.  

6. Once Soft Play is cured, remove the bolt AND metal sleeve. 

7. Now take the bolt and pass it through the climbing hold and hand thread it into each anchor. 

8. Tighten down the bolts for final. 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT LENGTH OF BOLT FOR THIS PRODUCT TO INSTALL THROUGH SOFT PLAY RUBBER

The hold needs 1-1/4" of the bolt to meet the back of the hold, plus the thickness of your Soft Play Rubber, plus 1-1/2" embedment depth for the concrete hollow set anchor.  

Example

o   You have 2" of Soft Play Rubber 

o   1-1/4"(Hold) + 2"(Rubber) + 1-1/2"(Embedment) = 4-3/4"

o   Bolts only come in half sizes so in this case, you need a 4-1/2" bolt.
