 NEW SLIMLINE FOLDING LNB ARM OPTION

We designed our DirecTV Slimline Folding LNB Arm Kit #2 to solve two important problems that occur with the DirecTV Slimline dish.  The first challenge was to make the dish smaller, for easier storage when transporting in an RV.   Allowing the LNB arm to fold up met this challenge and reduced the dish size by about 50%.  The second challenge was to keep the sensitive LNB head from hitting the face of the dish when in the folded position.  Having the new bracket fabricated with a set of stops solved that problem. 

When DirecTV introduced this model of the Slimline dish we believed it would be their last version - - we were wrong.  They have since introduced another variation of the Slimline dish - so now there are four different versions of this dish.   So, while our Slimline Folding LNB Arm Kit #2 is an EXCELLENT modification, it only fits this one version of the dish.

To make this modification feature available to Slimline owners who have one of the three other versions of the dish we are now introducing our SLIMLINE DISH CONVERSION PACKAGE.  The Elevation / Azimuth / Tilt  Adjustment Bracket of ALL Slimline models is the same; however, the Dish Face, Tilt Bracket and LNB Arm are different on each model.  The dish face is the same size, but the holes are in different positions.

Our new SLIMLINE DISH CONVERSION PACKAGE includes a new Dish Face, Tilt Bracket and LNB Arm with our Folding modification already installed.   You would use the Elevation / Azimuth / Tilt Back Adjustment Bracket and LNB head from your present dish and replace the other parts with the pieces from the kit.  You will need a 7/16 and 1/2 inch wrench to make the changes.
