Fitting our Heavy Letter Tidy with the Classic or Traditional Letterplate

When fitting the Traditional Letterplate or Classic Letterplate with and without clapper (as pictured above) with the Heavy Letter Tidy please follow the instructions below:

Remove the stud and nut or clapper loop and nut from the threaded bolt. You may need a bit of WD40 and pliers to help undo the Stud or Clapper Loop.

Discard the nut and threaded bolt.

Now use the flat headed threaded bolt that comes with the Letter Tidy to pass through the hole in the Letter Tidy through the door and into the back of the letterplate/stud or clapper loop.
