Stainless Steel Butterfly Header/Strap Clips are used for fastening solar pool heater panels to roof or rack and to hold down the retaining straps onto roof or rack. [See Diagram Above]
Header Clip Instructions:
Verify that the panels are in position. Using your solar pool heater measurement chalk lines, make sure the top edge of the header is parallel to the horizontal line and the left edge of the very first panel is on the vertical line. Then mark the horizontal line directly above the center of the top Rubber Coupling. Apply a generous amount of sealant to the bottom of the Stainless Header Clip, and position it on this mark with the lip end facing the panel. Using the drill and the 3/8” nut driver, install a Stainless #14x1½” 3/8 Hex Screw through the hole in the middle of the Header Clip into the roof until tight. The Clip should be tight, but be sure not to strip the screw in the wood. Also be sure the lip on the Clip is square against the Rubber Coupling. Apply a small amount of sealant over the head of the screw. Open the last Hose Clamp and slip the end down through the Stainless Header Clip [slotted end with a lip] and around the under side of the Rubber Coupling. Close the Hose Clamp and tighten snugly around the Rubber Coupling so that it is firmly seated against the lip of the Header Clip as shown in the Side View image above.
Note: Do Not attach the bottom header to the roof with a clamp and clip; this is to allow for expansion and contraction; securing the header will result in damaging the panel and will void the warranty.
Strap Clip Instructions:
Each Strap Clip is installed like the Header Clips, except that the slots face left to right [with no regard to which side the lip faces]. Space them equally between each panel absorber and install with sealant and a Stainless #14x1½” 3/8 Hex Screw. The Strap is then threaded through each side of each Strap Clip from left to right.
