IMPORTANT: If you are installing the new “Starlink” satellite dish, you may have to locally source longer mounting bolts to attach the dish to this kit.
Our Satellite Mounting Dish Kit includes everything you need to install any standard* satellite dish on virtually any standing seam metal roof on the market. Not for use on Screw Down Panel Profiles. This dish kit can be installed in 15-20 minutes with only basic hand tools. The Kit includes:
- 2 ea 26″ GripperFix Struts 54000140
- 4 ea GripperFix CF Tab 54000138
- 4 ea S-5 Original Seam Clamps (not mini clamps)
- 4 ea M8-1.25x17mm Flanged Bolts (Bolts the CF Tab to the Clamp) 54000146
- 4 ea M8-1.25x40mm Flanged Bolts (Inserts into the GripperFix Strut. Satellite dish is mounted to these bolts) 54000145
- 4 ea M8 Flanged Nuts 54000111

This video shows the installation of our Satellite Dish Mounting Kit:
Tools you will need for installation:
- Tape Measure
- Drill/Screw Gun (impact driver should not be used)
- 13mm wrench or socket, or adjustable wrench
Not required, but recommended:
- Hacksaw or Sawzall with 14tpi minimum metal cutting blade
- Torque Wrench (inch/lb for clamp set screws)
Important: Clamp set screws should be torqued to the minimum recommended torque for the clamp/panel combination specific to your roof. This is generally going to be between 115-175 inch/lbs, with 135 inch/lbs being the torque at which most clamps were tested. Most 18V drills/screw guns are more than capable of torqueing a set screw to within this range. Contact us for more information.
IMPORTANT: Some Starlink satellite dishes have a base that may require a longer bolt than we can supply to mount the dish (Our bolt is 1-9/16″ [40mm]). If you have one of these dishes, you will have to source longer bolts locally. We suggest preassembling your dish to one of the gripper fix rails to determine how much longer your fastener needs to be.
