Console Cap Assembly

About this task

The GE ports, console port, and vent on all outdoor access points must be torqued properly to ensure proper protection of access points against water intrusion. The access points come with a console port tie that must be torqued.


  1. Tighten the M25 console cap to a torque of 8.7 in-lbs.


    If a torque wrench is not available, tighten the console cap by hand. Use an open end wrench to tighten the cap between 1/8th to 1/4th turn.
  2. Loop the console port cap tie to the back of the access point, and place it on top of the tether screw hole.
