build a dock

Step 3 : choose hardware and foot pads


Choose either the normal duty or heavy duty dock post mounting system components. Only Tommy Docks offers a choice of components for both normal and extreme water conditions. Use the heavy duty diameter dock post mounting system components if the installation site includes:

  • Strong currents or winds
  • Docking larger boats
  • Heavy boat activity
  • Water depth over 8‛

Foot Pads

  • Use standard foot pads for hard lake bottoms (sand or gravel)
  • Muckpads are designed for soft lake bottoms (muck)
  • Use auger feet for soft soil lake bottoms that extend 12' deep or more
    • Auger feet may also be used to stiffen the dock in areas with high winds or boat activity
