    Measuring Ride Plate Angle

    You can use the pathagreon theorem to measure any angle if you know the length of 2 sides

    http://www.1728.com/pythgorn.htm

    -Place plate on completely flat surface bosses down
    -Measure the total length front to back (hypotenuse)
    -Measure difference in height from front of plate compared to back of plate(side 2)
    -Enter these 2 figures in inches into the formula and it will give you the angle
