NO DROP SYSTEM®

The Dodge Hanger Bottom® (DHB) is part of a no drop system that is designed to install the starter row of the siding even or flush with the bottom of the sheathing.

We recommend you use the DHB to hang your siding if you have already dropped your sheathing below the mudsill with a DHTL or a DHR.

Select the DHB with a saddle width that matches the thickness of the siding material to be installed.

DROP SYSTEM®

The Dodge Hanger Rear® (DHR) is part of a drop system that is designed to install the starter row of siding below the bottom edge of the sheathing to create a barrier at the mudsill.

Use the DHR to hang your siding if you installed your sheathing even or flush with the top of the foundation wall using the DHC0 and DHB no drop system.

Select the DHR with a saddle width that most closely fits the thickness of the siding material to be installed.

OUT OF LEVEL STRUCTURES

The Dodge Hanger Top Leveler® is versatile and can be used to install the starter row of siding on the structure, even if the sheathing is out of level. Select the DHTL with a saddle width that most closely fits the thickness of the siding material to be installed.

DHTL15-11. Find and mark level points on the wall sheathing using a transit or level, allowing for either a no drop or drop installation of the siding to the sheathing.

2.
Snap a chalk line between the level marks.

3.
Use (2) DHTL’s on 5’ material or less; for material over 5’, use (3) DHTL’s.

4.
Do not bend the top tab of the DHTL over; leave straight. Place the (2) outside corners of the DHTL on the chalk line, using the alignment site for accuracy. Place one in the center if needed.
