If the Slider is sticking when moving it along the Profile, a touch of oil on the Profile runners will ensure they slide freely. See Video if you need more info.

Foundation Not Level

Correct The Foundation Level

Correct The Foundation Level


  • Lock in the profile at the lowest point of the foundation, with a height notch set at the standard correct height (225mm For standard UK Block)
  • Set up the far end, use a water or laser level to align the notches between the 2 profiles so they’re in horizontal alignment. (Note; the 1st notch is set at 50mm on one end of the profile and 25mm on the other end, this allows for greater flexibility when setting up and facilitates getting perfect levels. The notches are 75mm apart (between) thereafter.
  • Attach the string line &  correct the irregularity by cutting the initial course of blocks.

Should I Support The Profiles When Pulling High Up?2016-10-19T08:59:57+01:00

It’s recommended to use the slider as a support when pulling high up, spares can be purchased but also remember the String Line can be tied off independently of the slider using our new Plastic Line Tie Off’s. This allows the slider to be used solely as a corner supporting instrument – support to the profile when pulling high up.
