3. Position the door header track bracket 20mm above the bottom edge and centrally on the door header
4. Install the electric operator according to the manufacturers instructions, keeping the track horizontal.
5. Lay the AP2006 arms on the floor, swap the arms if necessary to suit door handing by reversing the 'L' arm (the hockey stick shaped bracket) thus enabling the spring loaded arm to be attached to the door that is rebated to close first.
6. Make a pencil mark at the top of the doors 1 mtr. from the hinged edge
7. Attach the arms to the sliding trolley of the operator then fix the other ends of arms to the doors at the 1 mtr. pencil mark. (use a strap to support one arm while attaching the other arm to the door)
8. Engage and carefully run the electric operator and set the open & close limit stop adjustments making sure that overlapping door is closing fully but not pulling too hard against the frame.

9. Check that the doors close properly with particular attention to the bottom.

11. Fit the cable outer and cable stop bracket to the door, pass the cable through and secure it to the floor bolt. Close the doors with the motor, then adjust the cable length so that the bottom latch bolt is engaged into the floor striker plate by 8mm.
12. Fit the passive sprung latch to the second door, the bolt must be positioned 6mm up from the bottom edge of the sliding tongue on the main latch and over-lapping it by 8mm. (Note :- the sliding tongue is reversible to suit door handing)
13. Apply grease to all the sliding latch parts then check the operation of the latches. Make final adjustments and check that the latches engage when the door is closed by the electric operator, and release prior to opening, if the latches fail to release on opening check for correct cable adjustment and latch lubrication. Note :- check the safety-stop system and make adjustments to the trip sensitivity, the motor must reverse if the doors are obstructed while closing
