Pool Table Installation

Pool Table Installation - If you purchase a pool table from Pool Tables Online then we would always recommend that you have your pool table professionally and fully installed by us.

If however you have chosen to install your own pool table, below is a rough guide to setting it up.

The table will be delivered to you in 3 parts. The cabinet body, the legs and the slate. Please also be aware that slate bed pool tables are very heavy and we always recommend having at least 4 people on hand to help.

Below is a step by step guide of to set up your UK slate bed pool table:

1.Remove the Top Frame. To remove the top frame from the cabinet you need to unclip six toggles. The toggles are placed at either end of the cabinet and on either side.

2.Attaching the Legs. After removing the legs from the inside of the cabinet secure each one to the four corners of the table by placing the leg bolt through the pre drilled holes in the base.

Please ensure you have adequate people on hand to help with this. Fix the legs in place by fully tightening the nut provided onto each leg bolt. This is very important.

3.Position the Table. Place the table into position by lifting & do not drag the table. It is best to do this before installing the slate. When the table is in position place a spirit level across the inner beams and level by adjusting the screw feet before the slate is inserted into the table

4.Remove Accessories. If you haven’t already done so remove the accessories from inside the table. This will include cues, balls, triangle, chalk etc.

5.Fit the Slate. The pool table slate is the heaviest part of the table. Please do not attempt to fit this without using a minimum of four people. Fit the slate to the table by placing it on the slate support beams.

6.Re-Fit Top Frame. Align the top frame with the slate pockets before toggling the frame down. The Top Frame is securely fixed to the table by re-attaching the six toggles. These are the same toggles that you released to take off the top frame but to access them now you will now have to use the hand holes cut out under the base of the table.

7.Levelling. The easiest way to level your table is to use a spirit level and adjust the feet on the pool table legs. The feet can be adjusted by turning them clockwise to raise the table and anti clockwise to lower.

8.Brushing. When brushing the cloth always work the brush up the table in one direction away from the ‘D’ marker.
