RV Sliding Canopy Lock

The 1 in. .063 white washer is used on the RV8 and the F1 Rocket only. “NOT USED” on the RV6,7,9 Series aircraft.

Slide the canopy to the desired position for cockpit venting and mark the position for the hole to be drilled. Drill the hole using a D drill and supplied drill guide. Ream to ¼ in.

Slide canopy forward and close latch. Install the canopy lock and measure distance from the lock to where the canopy skirt contacts the slider guide.

Cut the plastic spacer to length using a table saw. The white spacer is used when a fully locked canopy is desired. This will allow most canopy covers to fit. It is suggested that a piece of shrink wrap be installed on the lock to prevent damage to the paint on the skirt when the vent position is used.
