How do I install AC Armor in the ground?
Your AC Armor can be shipped either assembled or dis-assembled for ground delivery . Once assembled place your armor over your air conditioner and air conditioner pad. Mark the spots where the posts contact the ground. These spots serve as a template for where you will install your AC Armor. In the marked locations, dig four 12" deep holes approximately 12" round. Fill the holes with Quickcrete concrete mix. Place your armor over your air conditioner and pad so that the legs are set in the Quickcrete. Using a level tool, make sure your armor is level and allow to dry.
I have seen recently where I can purchase tamper-proof screws for my AC unit panels. Do these work?
Tamper-proof screws may be helpful in deterring a thief from access into the panels of your ac unit while the unit is still on your property; however, it will not stop the thief from stealing the entire unit. AC ARMOR will deter theft of the entire unit.
What do I do if I have a plastic air conditioner pad?
If your air conditioner pad is plastic, you should install your AC Armor into the ground around both your air conditioner unit and pad according to directions.
