1. Clean and dry the area of contact between the tub and plinth on both items.
 
2. Remove hardware from bottom of tub if necessary (bolt caps, nuts, washers).
3. Apply a bead of silicone sealant to the plinth along the area that will make contact with the tub.
 
4. Firmly place the tub onto the plinth and allow the silicone to dry for 24 hours.
5. When the silicone is dry, carefully lay the tub and plinth upside down so that the bottom of the tub is facing up and attach the mounting brackets.
6. Tighten the bolts, alternating from one to another until all are secure.
7. Use plastic shims to make any necessary adjustments.
8. A silicone bead can be added to the perimeter of the tub and plinth to disguise any gap that may be visible.
