Before discarding the carton, check to see that no small hardware parts have fallen to the bottom of the box. Identify all parts using instruction sheet as a reference. To install your Basco bath enclosure you’ll need a tape measure, level, #2 phillips screw driver a 3/16″ wrench, hacksaw, clear silicone caulking and drill with the 1/8″ standard drill bit in 3/16″ tile masonry drill bit Start by measuring the opening at the center the tub rim.
Measure and cut the tub track 1/16″ short of this dimension. Place the tub track in the center of the tub rim with the tall leg to the exterior. For fiberglass or acrylic units, it may be necessary to file a radius on the ends of the tub track and wall jams to match the corners of the enclosure. Press both wall jams into position over the tub track. Use a level to plumb both wall jams. Then mark the pre-drilled hole locations on the wall. Lightly mark on the side of the tub track with a pencil, then remove all the parts. For tile or marble walls drill six 3/16″ diameter holes and insert the plastic wall anchors. For fiberglass or acrylic units, if reinforcement is built into the wall or the unit drill six 1/8″ holes to install mounting screws directly into the reinforcement.
Next, run a heavy bead of silicone caulk inside the pencil marks on the tub rim. Place the tub track in the exact pencil arked positions and press it firmly in the caulking. Replace wall jams in the tub track and attach each to the wall with one 8″ X 1.5″ truss head screw. Slip a nylon spacer over the two middle truss head screws and install each into the center hole of both wall jams. Check each jam for plump, and tighten the screws, being careful not to over tighten. The 6150/7150 bath enclosure is equipped with safety T Lock wall jams. When properly installed, the header is permanently locked to the wall jams and cannot be accidentally dislodged.
To secure this, measure the wall-to-wall opening at the top of the wall jams and cut the header 1/16″ short of this dimension. Check the header for fit. Place the header on top of the wall jams, making sure the Basco logo is facing out. Holding the header in position, carefully twist the loose while jam and fit into place inside the header. Pivot the wall jam back into place, press into position and attach it to the wall with two 8″ X 1.5″ truss head screws inserted through the top and bottom holes. Attach the four nylon roller bearings to the door panels using 8/32″ by 3/8″ hex head screws centered in the outside slots in the top bearing fits. Lift the interior panel with a rough surface closest to the top, fit into position with the rollers fitting into the roller slide in the header.
For maximum waterproofing, position the interior panel closest to the shower head. Repeat this procedure for the exterior panel. If the door panels are not parallel to the wall jams, remove them from the header and adjust the rollers up or down. Slide the four towel bar trim rings over the clear acrylic towel bar brackets and press the brackets into the ends at the two towel bars. Attach one towel bar simply to the exterior panel with the # 10 24″ X 7/8″ inch truss head screw through the inner rail. Insert a # 10 24 X 1 1/8″ flat head screw through an acrylic finger pull, then through the outer rail and into the outer towel bar bracket. Do the same for the interior door panel.
Locate the nylon bottom guide in the middle at the tub track with the door panels. With a 7/64″ bit, drill a hole into the v-groove through the mounting hole in the bottom guide. Install the bottom guide with a 6″ X 3/8″ pan head screw through the drilled hole. Slide the stainless steel bumper inserts into the two soft vinyl jam bumpers. Align the slides and the bumpers with the outer rails at the door panels and snap the bumpers downward over the center while jam screws with the nylon spacers. Neatly silicon both the interior and exterior of the entire unit where the tub track and wall jams meet the top tub or tile, paying special attention to the interior of the tub track.
