Before we begin replacing the diving board bolts we will want to make sure that our diving board is structurally sound otherwise. If your board has hairline cracks in the surface coating, a fracture to the boards main plank or a worn/slippery runway you may need more than bolts to make your diving board safe.
After determining the bolts are the root of your issue we need to locate and begin to disassemble the bolt assembly. These bolt assemblies may vary slightly from manufacture to manufacture but they are generally similar. Depending on your board there may be two to up to four bolts that need to be replaced.
Finally we get to remove the bolt itself. Using the bottom stem of the bolt you can push up until the recessed bolt cap can be gripped for removal. If you cannot remove the bolt by hand, use a tamping tool such a small rubber mallet to loosen its grip. Repeat the above steps for all the remaining bolts.
From the underside of the board we will want to place the following pieces onto the bolt in the respective order: Nylon Washer, Stainless Steel Washer, Slit Locking Washer then finally the Hex Nut. This order must be followed or improper installation may void warranty. If your diving board has varying parts please consult your owner's manual.
