I install my Pool Table on my own?
If you decide to have your table delivered ‘kerb-side’
only, you will need to make provisions to install and level the
table yourself. Have a look below for a guide to installing and
leveling an English Pool table.
note that before deciding whether to install the table yourself
we would first recommend checking out our Room
Size Guide to ensure that you have the required space to install
and use a Pool Table in your given space.
thing to note is that installing an English Pool Table is a two
person job and will require heavy lifting. Before you proceed to
install your table, we would recommend reading up on correct heavy
lifting and carrying advice first, as there are plenty of useful
resources on the internet that cover this subject very well.

Installation for Freeplay Pool Tables)
Carrying the Body of the Pool Table
removing the outer packaging of the Pool Table body, take out of
the accessories that have been packed inside the table before lifting
and carrying the body. The weight of the bodies of our Pool Tables
vary depending on the model, but as a rough guide expect to be lifting
anything between 60 kilograms to 11 kilograms.
Carry the body of the Pool Table to the room / area that you wish
to install the table in. As mentioned above, this stage will require
two able bodied people, as the body of a Pool Table can be awkward
to carry due to it’s shape and depth (especially around corners
and through doorways).
In the room that you wish to install the table, lay the Pool Table
down safely on to the floor.
the Legs to the Body of the Table
easiest way to do this is to first carefully lift the table on to
one person hold the table steady on it’s side whilst the other
screws the table legs to the base of the table. Once
the table legs have been screwed into the body of the table, you
will then need to bolt on the Leg Levellers to the base of each
leg. The Leg Levellers are the adjustable feet that will allow you
to make sure you get the table level before you play.

gently lift and turn the table so it is resting on it’s legs.

Slate Bed), you will need to unclip the Top Frame from the Body
of the Table. This is done by simply unclipping the table top beneath
the frame where it is attached at various points along the edge
of the body.

the weight of a Pool Table comes from. Slates are approximately
¾ Inches thick and weigh around 125kg.

slate will fit and rest inside the body of the table under it’s
own weight and does not need to be fastened or attached.

Frame in to place.

the table where you will find holes allowing you to reach inside
the table and secure the clips along the varying points of the Top

to how you should adjust the Leg Levellers accordingly.

to simply screw the bolted Leg Leveller higher or lower accordingly
