A. Remove contents from box and identify
all parts using the "exploded" drawing.
B. Locate end panels (1). Locate upper strut
(3). Stand end panels upright, and with
long leg of upper strut pointing down (see
Figure A), screw through holes in end panel into
C-shaped channels of upper strut using two
screws (supplied) at each end. Repeat procedure
on opposite side of structure. Refer to drawing
C. Find lower strut (4) and repeat same operations as in step B. Note the lower strut can
be rotated and may be installed improperly.
Refer to Figure A which shows proper position
of lower strut.
D. Find center strut assembly (2) and screw
through end panel into C-shaped channels
of the center strut. Note: At end of center strut
from which wire extends, first feed wire into
center channel under plastic accent strip, of end
panel (10) as shown in exploded diagram.
E. Locate fluorescent tubes and install into the
receptacles located on bottom side of center
strut (2), then twist and they will lock into place
(the same way you would install a tube in your
kitchen or bathroom.)
F. Locate the four largest rectangular pieces
of glass. These will form the sides of the
Klima-Gro. Set the top edge of one piece of
glass in the inside track of the upper strut (3)
and lift the glass panel. When the glass is raised
as far as it will go, it will provide space to place
the bottom of the glass on the inside track of the
lower strut (4). Refer to Figure A for illustration.
Repeat this procedure using the outside tracks
of upper and lower struts (3) and (4). (see Figure
A). Using the two remaining pieces of this size
glass, repeat this operation on the opposite side.
The side glass assembly is now complete.
G. Assemble the upper glass using the four
smaller pieces of glass. Repeat step F using
center strut (2) and upper strut (3). Refer to
Figure A as required.
H. Locate two end caps (6) and push bottom
thin lip of cap under accent strip in center
strut and push up against accent strip in end
panel. (see Figure E).
I. Attach glass panel slide handles (11), referring
to Figure B. There are eight handles, one for
each side sliding panel (four) and one for each
top sliding panel (four). Handles should be
vertical, and centered vertically between top
and bottom of glass, 1" from edge of glass when
properly installed (see Figure B). After you have
determined proper placement, clean glass
surface with Windex, Sparkle or similar glass
cleaner to assure a clean surface, free from
grease and dirt. Remove tape backing from rear
of handle, exposing pressure-sensitive adhesive
surface. Press handle firmly into position on glass.
Your Klima-Gro roof assembly is now complete.
Do not place roof on base at this point but prepare the soil bed for planting, referring to the
Owner's Manual, "Preparing the soil
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you will refer to the
Owner's Manual, you will see that it is necessary
to roll back the heat shield and attached
heating wires, to fill the unit base with soil
mixture prior to planting. There is sufficient
"slack" in the wire to permit this without having
to remove any plugs. Once the soil bed is
prepared (see Figure C) you can plant the bed
prior to installing the roof assembly and completing the Klima-Gro structure. However, there
is sufficient access to plant the soil bed after
the assembly is complete.
To install the roof assembly, it is necessary
to connect the lighting unit to the control panel.
To do this, set the completed roof on the base,
in the grooves provided in the top of the base.
Make sure roof is seated firmly in the grooves.
The end panel with the wire coming from the
lighting unit (step D) should be on your left as
you face the unit, with the control panel also
facing you on your left. Remove end cap (6)
and slide up the end accent strip (5) to expose
wire. Thread wire coming from control panel in
base of unit up through center channel of
end panel and plug into receptacle coming
down from the top of center strut (refer to
exploded drawing if necessary). When
connection is completed, slide end accent strip
back down into proper position and replace
end cap as explained in step H.
Your Klima-Gro assembly is now complete.
Refer to Figure D for proper grounding
instructions prior to plugging the unit into a
