Hardware for attaching to the pool deck HAS been supplied but due to the wide variety of deck types and materials, we suggest you please consult with your local hardware store or pool service company to make the appropriate selection as to how to attach it to your pool.
There is no “one” right way to attach the bolts; however, we suggest that you:
Find a spot visible from all parts of the pool, with minimal deck traffic and activity–this could be next to build in steps (as a training mechanism), farther down the pool sidewall, or beside the skimmer basket, but do not block the skimmer basket with the ramp!

Proudly made and tested in South Africa.
Water Exit-Ramp is an escape ramp: a means of preventing animals and pets from drowning.
The science is that ALL living beings – domestic or wild bugs, animals, or humans whether they are color blind or not – see 550 nm wavelength, which is the color white. As long as the Water Exit-Ramp is installed so that a few inches of the nose (curved) end are under water and the ramp breaks the surface, the animal will see it. The other end of the ramp is like a box lid, and it is that open-box-lid end that must be snug to a vertical wall (whether it’s a pool, floating or fixed dock, walled pond, spa, stern/swim platform of a boat, or water troughs in pastures and remote ranch land) in order to provide the rigidity necessary for an animal to climb out on the ramp.
Tips for training your dog to use the Water Exit-Ramp
You wouldn’t let your children swim without teaching them how to get into and out of the pool safely so why wouldn’t you do the same for your dog? Most can swim, but not all do it well. Some love the water, and others don’t. Regardless, the principle behind the Water Exit-Ramp is to keep them safe and help them to get out of the water when they need to on their own.
Dogs are different!
We know that dogs are the one animal that needs to be trained to use the Water Exit-Ramp. Why? Because they expect you to rescue/help them! Dogs have become so domesticated over the years that they have lost many of the instincts that enable other pets and animals (cats, rabbits, frogs, etc) to use the Water Exit-Ramp without hesitation. These other animals see the ramp leading out of the water, swim over to it, and climb out.
Here are a few tips for training your dog to use the Water Exit-Ramp:
Your dog now knows he can get out of the water using the Water Exit-Ramp! Even if he is not a big water dog, it is helpful for him to know just in case!
Dogs are the only animals that have to be trained to use the Water Exit-Ramps! Cats, meerkat, rabbits, rats, frogs, snakes, even spiders all go to it instinctively.
