Wedge Brackets

Our wedge brackets were designed to provide customers with the flexibility of installing our satellite systems on uneven surfaces and vehicle roofs that have up to a 10° slope. The wedge plates were designed to attach to our new mounting rails with no custom work required whatsoever.


The wedge brackets are attached in one of two configurations:

  • The first configuration addresses uneven or curved roofs or roofs with slopes of up to 5°.
  • The second configuration addresses roofs with slopes of up to 10°.

Wedge Brackets installed for a 0 to 5° slope

This image shows the wedge brackets in the first configuration with our SD75a Shaw Direct satellite system (the wedge brackets fit all newer ESSi satellite systems). The brackets have a series of slots that allow you to level the system when the rails are fastened to a roof with a slope of 0° to 5°. The carriage bolts used to fasten the bracket to the rail slide within the slots in the bracket and the rail until the system is level, then the bolts are tightened to secure your system to the roof.

If you have a roof with obstructions along the center of the roof line, or have an extreme curve on the roof, the wedge bracket used in this configuration will allow you to level your ESSi satellite system properly side to side.

Wedge Brackets installed for a 5 to 10° slope

This image shows the wedge brackets in the second configuration with our SD75a Shaw Direct satellite system (the wedge brackets fit all newer ESSi satellite systems). The lower edge of the bracket is cut at 5°. This allows you to level your ESSi satellite system when the rails are fastened to a vehicle roof that has a slope between 5° and 10°.
