catch cover cutout dimension

Recommended Posts

Ive ordered the catch covers and should be here this weekend. However, if they do not make it this weekend I still want to cut the holes in the floor so I can progress with the floor insulation and fastening and move on to the walls. So does anyone know the dimensions that I need to cut out? Is it 12" 13" or what?

thanks

You'll need to cut your holes 12.5". Also, remember to cut your holes far enough away from walls, benches etc. to be able to get your auger in so it's perpendicular and not banging against anything. We recommend the center of the hole be at least 9" away from anything which might get in the way of your auger (more if possible.)

thanks matt.

oh yeah, you mentioned the center of the hole being at least 9" from the wall. That may not hold true for corner holes if you have a power auger. just thought I would throw that out there for others that are cutting there holes.

I learned this the hard way in my previous perm. smile.gif Only had a hand auger when I built it and it worked fine with hand auger, but not when I upgraded to a power. The way I measured my auger, I need to have center at least 9" from one wall and 13" from the other on a corner hole to be safe.

Actually,
just to clarify, on a 12" hole, 9" away on center works for a corner hole if you are using an 8" or under power auger.

However, as Matt stated, further away IS better.
