IMPORTANT to verify Track Depth of mast channel is 17.0 to 17.7mm and slot cut is Slot 6" x 1/2".
INSTALL: There are two nipple pin protrusions under the MastGate sleeve. Each has a 1/16" guide hole for you to place a 1/16" drill bit. After installing the drill bits, press the insert sleeve into the feed slot till the nipple pin bottoms out. Squarely aligned the insert before you can tap or twist the bits to mark the locations on the back web of the feed slot. Remove the sleeve and use a center punch or a nail to indent the drilling location (this helps the tip of drill to stay centered). Drill out the 3/16" holes and later use a larger drill bit to hand twist to cut away any burrs around the hole. Now you can snap the MastGate sleeve insert into the feed slot. The holes will prevent the nylon insert from sliding in the feed slot when under the pressure of the sail slugs running through.REMOVAL:
Top & Bottom ends of the insert sleeve have outer edge notches. Squeezing notches together with needle-nose of hemostat plyers makes it easy to pull the insert up & out. Reviewed on StingySailor: https://stingysailor.com/2018/03/03/product-review-mastgates-sail-track-gates-2/
