  • Step 1: Add on predrilled angle-iron clip against the lower sides of a gazebo. It will ensure the structure rests flat on the surface of the stone patio.
  • Step 2: Mark every hole of your iron mounting angle using a pencil. You require one mark on the gazebo support and another one on the surface of the stone patio.
  • Step 3: Eliminate the mounting angles through their locations and also read all the installation instructions. To determine hole size, you have to drill the stone patio with precise concrete anchor bolts.
  • Step 4: Install masonry drill bit, which matches the hole size as per the concrete bolt installation instructions. Do put safety glasses when doing so.
  • Step 5: You need to align the tip of the masonry drill bit onto the pencil marks that you have made earlier on the surface of your stone patio. After that, pull the trigger of the hammer drill and drill the precise hole to the specified depth as per concrete installation instructions. Now, repeat the procedure with other drill holes.
  • Step 6: Clean the drilled hole within the stone patio. Simply blow air in the hole with a handheld air bulb and place a concrete anchor bolt in a hole. After that, drive the anchor bolt in the hole using a hammer.
  • Step 7: Get rid of the hex nut from the concrete anchor bolt's end and slide the mounting angle on the concrete anchor.
  • Step 8: Fix the socket to match the nut of the anchor on the 3/8-inch handle. Now, place the socket on the given hex nut of the given bolt. Then, turn the ratchet handle in a clockwise direction for locking mounting angle on the stone patio. Repeat this procedure for installing all the given mounting angles onto the stone patio.
  • Step 9: Now, fix the 3/16-inch drill bit within the variable-speed drill monitor. Then, drill a hole to support the gazebo at each location of the mounting angle.
  • Step 10: In this step, place around 3-inch long and 3/8-inch lag bolt within the socket fixed to the 3/8-inch ratchet handle. Then, insert the tip of the lag bot within the hole that you have drilled within the gazebo.
  • Step 11: Now, turn the ratchet handle in a clockwise direction to thread the lag bolt in the gazebo. Meanwhile, the mounting angle is secured. Repeat this process to secure the gazebo to your stone patio.

You can do it yourself if you have prior experience, or call professional installers to do the job right.
