Carefully pull your rails out of the foam carriers. Install one of the rubber bumpers on one of the rails with the fat side facing the end of the rail. Fit one end of an end plate over the end of one rail. Make sure the end plate has its fat end facing down and the curved end up. Insert a mounting bolt through the corresponding leg (make sure the teeth are on the same side and the leg is pointing down) and screw it into the rail until it’s snug.
Note: Make sure the teeth align and fit together when positioning the legs; don’t tighten the mounting bolt if the tips of the teeth are touching each other as this can damage the teeth.
Repeat this on the opposite leg so that you have one end plate and 2 legs completely installed. Feel free to position the legs however you wish. They lock in place once the bolt is tightened.
Next, take the carriage out of the parts box and slide it onto the rails. The preload of the outer wheels has been pre-adjusted at Rhino HQ for optimal performance.
After you have your carriage on the rails you’ll need to attach your second end plate. Before you put the plate over the end of the rails, install the second rubber bumper onto the opposite rail that you installed the frst one on. The fat side should rest against the end plate with the rounded side facing the carriage. These bumpers protect the wheels of your carriage from being damaged by rolling into the end plate. Next, install the end plate just like the first using the 2 remaining legs and bolts.
Your Rhino Slider is now fully assembled and ready for use! Just mount your ball or fluid head and start flming.The carriage should roll extremely smooth along the rails, if it doesn’t please see our cleaning section.
