How to Install The McMonty
Pull up and lock the metal side arms into position. Check they are thoroughly locked into place.
To assemble the plastic cover, arrange the plastic cover so the long Velcro seam is at the top, and the Velcro tabs are exposed on the outside. Line up the stitched centre seam with the middle of the metal frame, above the fan. Connect by pressing the Velcro along the edge of the top of the frame. Tuck the plastic inside, so it all sits inside the metal side arms.
There are two Perspex hoops. Step back, and extend the slightly smaller hoop (hoop 1). Pull out the middle of the plastic cover, and attach the first Velcro loop around the Perspex hoop. You can pull the Perspex a little to help achieve this if you can’t quite reach. The Perspex is pretty flexible and won’t break.
Continue to loop all Velcro tabs into position along the remainder of the hoop. Step back again, and pull up the larger hoop (hoop 2). Follow the same process of attaching the Velcro, starting with the centre Velcro tab.
Check the plastic is set up evenly along the hoops.
After the checking process of the fan and the hood’s structural integrity, wheel the McMonty into place at the head end of a patient’s bed.
Setting up the McMonty is a 3-person task.
