Do the MoonBoard holds come with fixings?
No. You will need to purchase t-nuts and bolts separately.

What type, size and quantity of bolts and t-nuts do I need for the MoonBoard holds?
We use the metric sizes which means you need an M10 t-nut and bolt. The equivalent imperial size is 3/8″. The Original School holds require cap head bolts the School Holds Set A and B take either cap head or countersunk bolts. The following is a guide to the bolt lengths you require.

Original School Holds
40 x M10 x 50mm bolts

Set A
40 x M10 x 50mm cap head or countersunk bolts.
10 x M10 x 80mm cap head or countersunk bolts.

Set B
40 x M10 x 50mm cap head or countersunk bolts.
10 x M10 x 80mm cap head or countersunk bolts.

Set C
17 x M10 x 50mm cap head or countersunk bolts.
35 x M10 x 70mm cap head or countersunk bolts.

Wood A
32 x M10 x 50mm countersunk bolts.

The minimum height requirement for a 40 degree MoonBoard is 315cm and for the 25 degree MoonBoard 370cm.
If you do not have the minimum height requirement for a MoonBoard you have a number of options but all will affect the grade of the problems to a lesser or greater extent. The kick-board is 37cm so you could start by reducing this. Although a kickboard is not essential not having one will add to the difficulty of the problems and I would suggest you keep at least a 20cm kick-board. If you still need more height after reducing the kick-board then you could increase the angle of the Moon Board however depending on the difference in angle this could have a big impact on the grade of the problem. Finally, you could reduce the row spacing; this will make the problems easier.
