Before You Start

To install EV Hover be sure you can:
• Locate a stud or other suitable support in the wall. Know the location of electrical wires in walls
• Drill holes for and install screws
• Lift 20 pounds above your head for a long enough duration to attach the arm to the plate. Contact a licensed contractor if you cannot confidently meet these requirements.

EV Hover Parts

[1] EV Hover

[2] Wall Mount Bracket (comes attached to EV Hover with 2 screws)

[3] EV Charging Cable Adapter Wall Bracket with Velcro Strap

[4] 5 Stainless Steel Screws

[5] 7 Carabiners

[6] J hook (comes with screw attached)

Tools Provided

[7] Level

T27 Allen Wrench (not pictured)

Step 1 - Mount Wall Bracket [2]

A. Remove the wall mount bracket [2] from the end of the EV Hover unit [1] by removing the 2 screws and pulling the bracket from the slot. Place the screws in a safe place.

B. Ensure your charger cable will reach to proposed vehicle location when threaded along the EV Hover arm which is 9 ft long when fully extended

C. Select the desired location for your EV Hover - we recommend installing the wall bracket at least six or seven feet from the floor.  Be sure to consider obstructions that might present an issue when extending and swivelling the arm. 

D. Find a stud using a stud finder marking the edges of the stud with a pencil

E. Center the wall mount bracket [2] on the stud at the correct height, use the level [8] to make sure the bracket is straight and mark the holes. 

F. Drill pilot holes and install the top screw [4] first with an electric drill. We recommend a PH3 shockwave Phillips Driver bit. 

G. After securing the first screw [4], verify the bracket is level and confirm the other 2 holes are aligned correctly.

H. Install the next 2 screws [4]. Be sure all screws are tightened all the way in.

Step 2 - Connect the EV Hover arm [1] to the wall mount bracket [2]

IMPORTANT - Do not remove cable straps until EV Hover is completely installed.

A. Clip the EV Hover [1] onto the wall mount bracket [2] by clipping in over the top lip of the wall mount bracket [2] first. 

B. Insert the 2 small screws underneath, that you had set aside earlier. These only need to be tightened by hand.

C. Cut through the safety straps with scissors and extend the arms. 

Step 3 - Install the Carabiners [5] and Attach the J Hook [6]

A. Install the 7 carabiner hooks [5], rotating the hooks so the small ends are at the top inside the EV Hover and the large ends are hanging down towards the floor. Ensure all openings are facing the same direction. Starting from the wall, leave the 4th and 7th holes without a carabiner.

B. Remove the screw that is installed in the J Hook [6] and then attach the J Hook to the end of the EV Hover [1], reinsert the screw and use an allen wrench to tighten.

Step 4 (Optional) - Attach Adapter Wall Bracket [3]

A. If you need to use the adapter wall bracket [3], find the ideal location based on your cable - your chosen location should be close enough to your electrical outlet. 

B. Use a stud finder and mark edges of the stud with a pencil. 

C. Place the adapter wall bracket [3] in the center of the stud and mark the top hole

D. Drill pilot holes and insert screws [4]. Only the top screw is needed but you can install 2 screws if you prefer. 

E. Velcro your charger adapter securely onto the adapter wall bracket [3].

Step 5 - Install Your Charger Cable

A. Next, clip your charger cable into the carabiners [5], allowing enough length for the end of your charger cable to hang down below the hook to reach your vehicle. 

B. Place the end of your charger cable in the J Hook [6] - you can adjust the width slightly by pulling the prongs apart for a better fit. 

Congratulations, your EV Hover is fully functional and ready to go!
