Using the 2 nails, attach the base to the form. Ensure nailing plate is parallel to top of slab. Place concrete. Edge of slab must be vibrated to consolidate concrete around the Diamond Dowel sleeve (avoid contact with the sleeve with vibrator shaft). After the concrete has developed sufficient strength, strip the formwork to reveal the face of the dowel sleeve ready to accept the plate dowel. This is best accomplished by starting at one end and working along the form. Insert the Diamond Dowel plate into the sleeve (at the centre point of sleeve) within 36 hours of concrete pour. The second pour can now be made. Supply Diamond Dowels are packaged in kit format, in cartons that are illustrated with Installation Instructions. Each carton contains 25 sets of 6 mm Diamond Dowel plates and one-piece sleeves orange, or 15 sets of 10 mm Diamond Dowel plates and one-piece sleeves blue. Each sleeve is fitted with 2 double-headed steel nails. Diamond Dowel
