FF Fan install

To install the vent cover (edited) fan-Tastic Vent UltraBreeze,over the Fantastic Fan, I had to remove 4 of the sealed over screws that hold the vent to the roof to install the Clevis pin brackets.
I put a healthy glob or roof sealant on each hole,put down the bracket and installed the new screws.
I know I got a good seal cause sealant oozed from under the brackets and through the screw hole.
My question is do I need to go back and completely cover those brackets with a top coat of sealant.
I can do it tomorrow but ran out of daylight and didn't have a new tube with me
Thoughts?

FF Fan install

Youroo, here is a video of the Ultrabreeze vent cover he installed.



Trdutch, if you think the brackets might move you could add some Dicor to prevent that but it's not absolutely needed.

Thank you
I'm pretty sure I installed it with more care than most shops

I just got the vent cover and will be installing it as soon as this heat starts to go away. Thanks for the video it looks easy to install just have to remove some of the old sealant and then reseal with new.

It is an easy install. I used a utility knife to cut the existing sealant under where the bracket was going to be and just rolled it off with my fingers. After removing the screw, glopped it up good with fresh sealant, screwed down the bracket and then applied more on top to basically restore the profile of the stuff removed initially. Took only about 15 minutes and that included moving the ladder from side to side (I don't have the rear ladder and there ain't ever going to be anyone walking around on the roof).
