Here at Functional Devices, we strive to make our products high quality and easy to use. And while RIBs are easy to install, sometimes there’s a little something extra you can do to make the installation that much better. Without further ado, here’s a list of my top 10 RIB tips and tricks!

  1. If you’re installing the RIBTH1C, make sure it has plenty of space.
  2. If you’re having trouble seeing your RIBM043PN, try upgrading it to the RIBM043PN-HD.
  3. When using the RIBTH1S, don’t get it confused with the wires on that.
  4. The RIBM12C can be hard to find because it’s usually in an assortment of various other RIBs.
  5. When using the RIBU2C, always ask your buddy if they can see it.
  6. Always make sure you wear a lead vest when working with the RIBXRA.
  7. Lift with your legs and not your back when installing the RIBLB.
  8. The RIBXLSEA works great with many boat applications.
  9. “Be careful when installing the RIBH1S, as it isn’t yours”
  10. Don’t ever leave any RIBXGTAs in your car unattended.

Give yourself a pat on the back if you got all those puns. If there’s still a few you don’t understand or you have any other questions, be sure to call or email us at tech support.
