How to Assemble a Sportsmith Wooden Plyo Box

Instructional Video about How to Assemble a Wooden Plyo Box by Sportsmith

  • In this video we show you how to to assemble a Sportsmith wooden plyo box
  • The first step is to unpack the plyo box and make sure you have:

- (4) Side Panels that include two marked "A" and two marked "B"
- (1) Bag of Hardware that includes 16 Screws
- (1) Top Panel

  • Note: Though wood glue is not included, it is highly recommended
  • Take caution when assembling parts
- You want the rough square edge of the panels to face the inside of the plyo box and the rounded smooth edge to face the outside, as demonstrated in the video
  • Using one panel "A" and one panel "B" lean them against each other as shown
- Be sure that the top edge of the two boards are lined up and that both boards are lined up straight
  • Using one of the included screws, install a screw into one of the pre-drilled pilot holes
- Do not tighten the screw completely; just install the screw about half way
- This will leave some play in the assembly for alignment of all the pieces
  • Once you have assembled one panel "A" to one panel "B", set it aside and assemble the other half of the plyo box
  • Now that you have both "halves" assembled place them together as seen in the video and start the six screws that will attach the two halves together

Be sure you have not tightened any of the hardware completely before the next step

  • NOTE: Though wood glue is not included, it is highly recommended for assembly of this Plyo Box
- It will greatly increase the life of the box
  • Set the top piece in place. Then align one edge and install a screw through the top panel using one of the pre-drilled holes
  • Now move to the opposite edge and make sure the top panel is aligned before installing the screw
  • Make any final adjustments to the alignment and install the last two screws into the top panel
  • Make sure all alignment is correct and then tighten all hardware
- Don't forget to tighten the screws in the top panel
