The Diamond K9000 Motorized Antenna Tilt allows to fold an antenna up or down (90 degrees) from the press of a button:

The universal mounting brackets included with it need to be modified in order to work with 80/20 T-Slot’s crossbars. We wanted a clean, simple, and low-profile installation so we designed this mounting plate:

Installation


To complete this DIY project, you also need:

1. Install the mounting plate to the k9000


The K9000 Motorized Antenna Tilt comes with a universal base fitment bracket. Remove the four screws and discard the old bracket:

Motorized Antenna Mounting Plate Install 1 (Discard Old Universal Bracket)

Install the new mounting plate to the K9000 Motorized Mount (reuse the screws from previous step):

2. Mount your antenna to the k9000


Route the antenna through the antenna mount and fasten with the hardware provided with the WeBoost:

3. Install to your roof rack


Loosely install the t-nut(s) and the screws onto the mounting plate (so it’s ready to load into the crossbar):

Motorized Antenna Mounting Plate Install 4 (Preload T-Nuts and Screws)

Remove the crossbar, load the t-nut(s) from the crossbar end, reinstall the crossbar:

Motorized Antenna Mounting Plate Install 5 (Slide into crossbar)

Fastened the screws to secure the mounting plate to the desired position into the crossbar:

4. Adjust the tilt motion operating angle


Power the K9000 into a cigar plug. Set the antenna to be fully raised by pressing and holding “UP” on the remote:

If the antenna is not vertical, loosen the nut and adjust the antenna’s angle to your liking:

Then, adjust the tilt lower limit (0-45°) to your liking (e.g. to clear solar panel or such) by rotating the grey knob on the body of the K9000:

6. cables Routing and Wiring


The rest of the installation varies according to your van model, the antenna type, your electrical system, etc.

You’ll most likely have to pass the antenna cable and K9000 power cord through the roof. This is usually done via a cable seal, junction box, or our Cable Entry Pad for Ford Transit. You can get inspiration from the weBoost antenna we installed on our van:

  1. Great quality and well packaged. Ran into some snags being that i have an AVC rig Roof rack that is configured a bit differently than the flatline rack. The top of the 80/20 cross bars are flush with the top of the side rails making the antenna stick up higher than I’d like (eye sore/vulnerable). Also the T nuts that came with the plate did not fit into the 80/20 rails on my AVC rig rack. Not sure which series they are but i have some others to try on the way from amazon along with some other plate to play around with mounting options. Thanks so much! Your content has been massively helpful!!

  2. I needed to drill out holes to 5/16″ which was easy and it works perfectly.
