Wind Tracker 6000 Series
WINDSOCK REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Wind Tracker Replacement Windsocks 6000 Series
The Wind Tracker System should be installed within the routes of evacuation and at a height not to exceed 20 – 25
feet above grade for proper performance, safety, and accuracy.
Installing the Wind Tracker Windsock System at high elevations where unobstructed wind conditions prevail will
not demonstrate the actual wind movements in, and around, the area of evacuation, and may lead to persons
exiting the site or area in the wrong direction.
Every Wind Tracker replacement comes with the Wind Tracker, four pocket wind charts, hardness cords, flip over
clips, and instructions. This replacement kit will fit any Wind Tracker model.
Three Easy Installation Steps – No tools required:
Remove the harness cords and slide the worn Wind Tracker Windsock off the Lexan crossbar. When replacing the
harness cords, thread them into the holes at each end of the existing crossbar. Tie a simple overhand knot at the
end of the cord protruding from the crossbar. Tighten the knot and pull it into the crossbar. Tie the knot as close to
the end of the cord as possible (see illustration above).
Slide the crossbar with cords into one end of the Wind Tracker hem and through until it protrudes out of the other
end. Tie the cords to the harness plate using a simple overhand knot. Tie the knot as close to the end of the cord as
possible (see illustration above).
Position the Wind Tracker on the pole and insert the 14” fiberglass “Flip-Over” rod into the channel on the harness
plate and secure with the small white clip. Be sure the flip-over rod is on the top of the Wind Tracker Windsock.
