Correct fitting will greatly enhance the effectiveness of you cover and increase its life span...please read on...
These few simple notes and a little practice will help you to fit and remove your cover in the shortest possible time and to spot any potential problems before they become serious...
Low Wing Twin Engine aircraft covers can also be fitted using this method...the only difference being that your cover will not have an engine cowling and spinner Velcro closure at the front - just securing strap(s) under the nose. The front of your Twin cover is marked by our Cambrai Covers makers labels.
1. Pile the cover on top of the engine cowling or on a wing and locate the front of the cover - the engine cowl has the circular hole for the spinner and our label. Unroll the cover loosely on top of the aircraft in the correct fore/aft orientation.
2. The cover will have allowances for any aerials and probes fitted to the aircraft - these must be located and fitted first.
Important! Do not pull on windscreen mounted OAT probes - this will damage the windscreen!
3. Separate the 'Velcro' and buckle closure at the front of the cover, fit around the back of the spinner and re-close the Velcro and buckle. Do not pull the strap tight at this point!
4. Unroll the cover to the back of the aircraft until the back edge of the cover is reached. Loosely fasten the rearmost strap under the aircraft, adjust the cover such that the centre seam runs straight down the centreline of the aircraft and the OAT probe is near to the centre of its cut out.. Pull the cover back as far as it will go with out pulling on the aerials or OAT probe and then fully tighten the back strap.
5. Fit and tighten the remaining under-aircraft straps.
6. Fit the under-spinner buckle and snug the strap. This can now be left in this adjustment permanently.
The cover should fit the aircraft smoothly, without any loose areas or wrinkles, or undue tightness in any area. A little coaxing of the cover and practice will develop a technique for getting it right first time - every time! The straps can be adjusted from both ends, so that a sensible length of strap can be left with which to tighten the strap, without the end trailing on the ground. Strap ends should ALWAYS be folded neatly and tucked inside the hem of the cover so that they will not beat against the side of the aircraft in a breeze. Remove the cover from back to front in an approximate reversal of the above order, folding in such a way to facilitate easy replacement! Always return the cover to the storage bag supplied when not on the aircraft.
Oh, and one last thing...Always return the cover to the storage bag supplied when not on the aircraft! This will prevent damage and contamination...and Mice!!
That's It! The cover will remain in this position when correctly fitted!
