To install our bathroom accessories in a masonry wall you need a Hand Drill Machine, Tape Measure, Pencil, Spirit Level Screw Driver and various dill bits (Ø7mm Spade Bit, Ø5.5mm and Ø7mm masonry drill bits).
The RIGID Loc is a unique mounting method for bathroom accessories designed and engineered by Bathroom Butler that prevents accessories from coming loose. At Bathroom Butler we believe in a business ethos of continuous innovation and designing products by listening to what customers have to say. One of the most common problems with bathroom accessories is that the grub screws need constant retightening to prevent the accessories from coming loose. Bathroom Butler’s RIGID Loc Mounting System was specially engineered to overcome this problem. The patented design ensures Bathroom Butler’s accessories remain firmly secured in place.
The RIGID Loc Mounting System has been tested vigorously for performance and durability in-house. A strenuous knock test was developed to simulate the vibrations caused by daily use of various bathroom accessories. The RIGID Loc Mounting System passed more than 100 000 knocks which is incredible compared to the traditional grub screw fixation which failed after only 300 knocks.
As DIY products, Bathroom Butler accessories are easy and simple to install. A screw with a T-shaped barrel clamps down on the wall fixing. As you slide the accessory over the wall fixing, the barrel fits neatly into its groove. When you tighten the screw the T-shaped barrel slides down into place, pulling the accessory tight against the wall. The barrel is then locked into place.
When we were designing the RIGID Loc Mounting System we found that there were two parts to having a secure mounting. The first is the fixing of the mounting bracket to the wall and the second is the fixing of the accessory to the mounting bracket. We solved the problem of a secure mounting between the accessory and mounting bracket with RIGID Loc, but we also found a problem when fixing the mounting bracket to the wall. The basic problem is that most walls today are very soft resulting in a problem of oversized holes being drilled and also many installers using the closest drill size they have in their toolbox again resulting in oversized holes. We found that when using original Fischer® UX Wall Plugs, the mounting bracket is still secure even in oversized holes.
Yes, you can install Bathroom Butler RIGID Loc bathroom accessories on a dry wall using the original Fischer® UX Wall Plugs supplied with the product. Provided the dry wall is thicker than 24mm or you can fasten directly into a stud.
No, you must not remove the template. The reason for this is that the mounting template actually forms part of the RIGID Loc Mounting System by acting as a non-slip surface between the wall and the ribbed back of the mounting bracket.
Yes it does matter which way the RIGID Loc barrel is positioned. The little legs must be facing downwards like legs on the ground. The purpose of the legs is to make sure the RIGID Loc barrel does not rotate when the screw is tightened.
You know you have tightened the RIGID Loc bathroom accessories enough when the cover plate is tight against the wall. To achieve this make sure that you hold the allen key on the long end to get as much leverage as possible.
In our opinion there are too many sensitive installation requirements with all the glue mounting systems at this point in time. Until a glue has been developed that is not sensitive to small amounts of dirt, dust and moisture we do not believe in offering a glue mounting.
Yes you can remove your bathroom accessories from the wall by loosening the screw using the allen key. You will however notice that it is more difficult to loosen the screw than it was to tighten it – this is RIGID Loc in action.
Yes, it does matter which way you install the RIGID Loc mounting bracket. If it is not installed the correct way around, the accessory will not slide over the mounting.
No you do not, however we highly recommend that you do as it will make for a more secure mounting.
For the Fischer® UX Wall Plugs you should use Ø6mm drill bit. If you drill a hole that is too big then it will weaken your mounting.
