USE A MIRROR TO CHECK
FOR GAPS AND VOIDS

Before installation of the Kritter Cap®, use a small mirror and check for gaps and voids that need to be filled. Tabs can usually be left on and the corner insert just pushed up to the top of the foundation.

If this is hard to do, break off tabs that are not needed before installation of the Kritter Cap®. Check with mirror again after installing corner insert to be sure the Kritter Cap® closed the gaps.


CORNER GAPS and
CHECKING KRITTER CAP INSTALLATION®

This photo shows the gap that is created when the home builder does not overlap one end of the plywood sheathing to give a square corner.

This gap can be ½ to 2 inches in length. These are the gaps that the INSIDE FILLER TABS on the SCI-354 Corner Inserts close off and prevent mice and insects from going up inside the corner post.


SIMPLE TO INSTALL

Start one leg of the Kritter Cap® into the corner post fold. Insert the other leg and push the Kritter Cap® up to the top of the foundation. If possible, use a small mirror to see that the Kritter Cap® is closing the gap.

IMPORTANT: For best results, you'll want to push up Kritter Cap® into the corner post fold 4-6 inches AT LEAST to the top of the foundation level.
