WTE Vent Assembly Guide
The enclosure vent allows the release of trapped air when using the watertight enclosures. Once sealed, it provides a reliable high-pressure seal against water.
1. Lubricate the o-rings with a thin layer of silicone grease. The o-rings used for the plug and the o-ring used for the bulkhead look very similar but are different sizes.
Install the 2 slightly thinner o-rings on the Vent Plug.
Install the slightly thicker bulkhead o-ring in the groove on the underside of the bulkhead.
2. Using the provided M10 nut, secure the bulkhead to an appropriate hole in the watertight enclosure end cap. Tighten to finger tight, then use the Bulkhead Wrench to tighten an additional ~1/16 of a turn. If you can’t loosen the bulkhead with your fingers, it is tight enough. If using a torque wrench, tighten to 3.5 Nm.
Insert the plug into the bulkhead and tighten.
