IMPORTANT: This insert is built for a Track-Depth of 18mm and the feed slot cut is 3 1/2" x 1/2" .
Center the gate insert into the feed slot. Each bottom nipple pin has a 1/16" drill guide hole to help mark the location to drill 3/16" holes in feed slot's back web. Use a thin nail or the 1/16" drill bit to hammer in the hole to act as a center punch to mark the back web for drilling.
The hole will prevent the nylon insert from sliding in the feed slot when under the pressure of the sail slugs running through.
Remove insert before drilling the 3/16" holes, then use a larger drill bit to hand twist for removing burrs around the hole.
Top & Bottom ends of the insert have notches. Squeezing notches with needle-nose of hemostat plyers to pull the insert up & out.
