From the Ceiling:

A. Take the Manifold and use it as a cutting template on the ceiling Fig. 1

Cut a 6” x 10” opening on the ceiling. Fig. 2

C. Attach flex hose to the top of the manifold, using the end of the hose that does not have the hose retainer. The self locking spring will easily fit into the manifold. Fig 3 From inside the home insert the hose into the square hole, the end of the hose that has the metal retainer ring, must go first into the attic, once you have stuffed the length of the hose into the attic, the part which is connected to the manifold can now be placed through the square hole in the ceiling by tilting it sideways. Once you have it in the attic, it must line up so that it stands on the attic floor, straddling the square hole. Fig. 4. Sealant such as foam should be placed around the manifold on the attic floor.

* For tall attics you may need to attach the metal retainer to a truss by using a nail, screw or staple to the metal tap, which will bend for ease of placement. The metal retainer must be attached below where the roof jack will be placed, so that it may be easily reached by the roofers from the roof top.

D. Place 2 screws through the ceiling on each side of the square hole, so that the screws line up and fasten to the manifold tabs. This will secure the ceiling vent to the ceiling. Fig. 5

From the Roof:

E. From either the roof top or from inside the attic, pick a location on the upper portion of the roof, but below the ridge line. If you are inside the attic detach the metal hose retainer from the truss, and use it as a template to draw your circle. This circle will be the size and shape of your roof penetration. But before you make your roof penetration you must locate where your manifold is on the attic floor. Align your roof penetration so that it is offset approximately 6 inches to 2 feet of the ceiling vent manifold. If tracing your circle from the roof top view Fig. 6. If you are tracing your circle from the attic view Fig. 7.

F. Make your penetration, the circle should measure 6 1/2 inches in diameter, and with a bump-out on the side for the wiring of the motor to pass through the roof deck. Fig. 8 through 10

G. If you made your penetration from the roof side, you then want to reach in to the hole you just made on the roof deck and grab the flex hose. The end that that has the hose retainer must be the part that you get a hold of so you can attach it to the roof deck. To attach it to the roof deck, bend the tab at a 90 degree angle so it is flush with the roof deck, and then nail, screw or staple the tab to the roof deck. Fig. 11 through 12

From the roof deck, feed the end of the wire from inside the attic though the bump out. Using foam or caulking, seal the gap between the hose retainer and the roof deck. Then attach the Molex connector to the end of the wire. Fig. 13,14

I. Trace a second circle around the hose retainer and trim back the shingles for the AF-8. Fig 15. Connect the two halves of the Molex connector together. Fig 16 The Molex connector must be placed out of the Hose Retainer. Fig 17

* And not in the middle of the air-way Fig 18. The Molex connector is to be placed on the side of the Hose Retainer will be situated inside of the AF-8 see Fig 19
When the Molex connector is in its proper position install the AF-8 (Roof Vent), by placing caulk under the flange (square base), Fig 20 and mechanically fasten square base with a minimum of 4 screws, nails or staples per side, in order to secure it. Fig 21

From the Ceiling:

J. Now you must grab the excess hose that remains in the attic. Reach up and grab the excess hose and pull it out of the hole on a 45 degree angle. Fig 22

K. Excess hose may be hanging down out of the hole; this excess hose must be cut off. Fig 23 * Note expect debris do fall out of the hose when you pull it out of the hole.

L. When you cut out the excess hose you can not leave any extra, hose to hang down the manifold. Fig 24 this will stop the ceiling vent from functioning.

Make sure that only a small amount of hose comes down into the manifold. Fig 25

N. You want the hose to be strait and taught (View installed flex duct) not sagging like Fig 26.

O. Attach Ceiling vent with Ceiling Vent Cover to the Manifold using the supplied screws. Make sure that Ceiling Vent cover holes line up with the ceiling vent prior to attaching to the receiver on the manifold. (Screws will drive through ceiling sheetrock and into receivers of Manifold). Fig 27,28.
