This kit replaces all the adjustment hex nuts on your DirecTV Slimline satellite dish with wing nuts, eliminating the need for a wrench to loosen the hex nuts when making adjustments to the dish settings. It also adds hardware to allow the LNBF arm to be raised to a compact storage position without allowing the LNBF heads to contact the face of the dish, preventing damage to the heads.
Conversion requires drilling 6 holes with a 1/4" drill bit to replace the existing LNB bracket with the replacement bracket from the kit. Download the instructions below for further installation details.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - This kit will ONLY work on one model of the Slimline dish. The Slimline dish is made in at least five different models. Your LNB arm MUST LOOK EXACTLY like the one pictured in Fig. 1 below. If it does not, this kit will not fit your dish and you should use the UNIVERSAL FOLDING LNB ARM KIT #2.
We now offer this kit in a DELUXE MODEL that replaces the standard wing nuts with T Knobs for an easier grip. Select the DELUXE MODEL from the pull-down options menu above.
