How do I attach Dock Blocks™?

There are a variety of different effective methods.

  • If you are attaching to a floating dock, you can use rope or stainless chain and tie off to the cleats of your dock.
  • If attaching to pilings, an efficient approach is to use stainless steel chain with PVC “rollers”.
  • If you are attaching to a bulkhead it is possible to drill into the blocks and run a pipe through the block.

Dock Blocks™ does not sell pre-cut blocks, but our technical experts can provide assistance if this is the preferred method. Please see our installation page for more assembly information and video for more details.
