*You will need to clean debris from the hole as you drill. Take care not to drill the metal base of your shed or you will remove the protective coating. If you do damage the metal work, you MUST treat the hole with a rust inhibitor. Failure to treat the area will invalidate your warranty.
3: Thumb tighten the bolt into the hole.
4: Using a 13mm socket tighten the bolt fully. Finish tightening with the 13mm socket until the bolt head is tight to the shed base.
Repeat this simple process for each corner of each base section (front, mid and rear).
Note: You can carry out this procedure either before you build the shed or after the shed is built.
