How to properly attach a Boost Fin to an adapter
To ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience when attaching your Boost Fin to the adapter, follow these steps:
- Align the Adapter: Before screwing in the fin, make sure the adapter is properly aligned. This means ensuring that the threads on the adapter and fin align smoothly without any friction or misalignment.
- Gentle Handling: Once the adapter is aligned, there should be no need to apply force when screwing in the screws. It should be as easy as turning the screw between your fingers. Avoid using excessive force, as this can damage the screws or adapter holes.
- Overcoming Resistance: If you encounter resistance while screwing in the screws, gently push the fin downward or to the sides. This will help you find the "smooth point" where the screws can be easily turned. Take your time and be patient to avoid any damage.
For smoother insertion of the screws into the adapter, we recommend using some anti-rust spray or lube. This will reduce friction and make the process even easier.
