1. Pull the pitching rubber up thru the Launch Pad. The rubber is spiked thru the pad. Wiggle rubber back and forth and try pulling up so all 3 spikes are sliding thru at the same time – this prevent from pulling one of the nuts out of the rubber.
2. The Launch Pad is adhered with a urethane glue. You can use tools such as pliers or chisel to remove it. Some of the launch pad may rip apart and stay on the mound… use a scraper to remove the remaining rubber left on the mound. You can use a wire brush or grinder to remove as much of existing glue on the mound as possible.
3. Apply a generous amount of urethane based adhesive (Gorilla Glue or comparable) on the mound ensuring glue reaches the edges.
4. Place launch pad on mound and apply a sandbag or heavy object to use as ballast on top of launch pad to hold it place as the adhesive cures.
5. Allow glue to set up overnight.
6. Spike rubber back thru the pre-drilled launch pad hole.
*Note: If replacing Launch Pad onto a mound that did not originally have one installed, or had a smaller pad, you may need to remove some turf as well. Before applying adhesive, place the Launch Pad on the mound in the correct placement to make sure it will have enough clearance to be glued down to the fiberglass substrate. Use a marker and trace around the new launch pad. Use a utility knife and cut the trace line. Use a scraper or similar tool to clean the surface before applying adhesive.
