Several different mounting brackets are available to suit a variety of applications ranging from the basic to the sophisticated. Here, the assembly of a basic control panel is underway; in the foreground are two Schrader inflation valves with the push-to-connect tubing adapters installed, and a mini control valve, which will be fitted with a male D-type connector in a later step.
The main 3/8-inch manifold tubing is run along an existing wiring loom and secured with supplied nylon cable ties. The stiff polyethylene tubing is used to cover the manifold tubing to prevent chafing wherever a tie is used. Alternately, the manifold tubing can be secured by drilling 3/16-inch holes along the plumbing route and the mountable cable ties used. The polyurethane tubing has a temperature limit of 160 degrees Fahrenheit, so make sure to route it away from heat sources.
