Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add floats to tommy dock sections?

No. Our sections are not heavy enough for the floats to submerge safely enough into the water for dock stability and safety.

"How many floats do I need for this size dock"?

You can reach out to Techstar for specific layout and spec questions. They can be reached at 1-800-263-7943 or by email at sales@techstarplastics.com. You can also find a lot of specs on their site techstarplastics.com

What hardware do I need?

You will need 5/16" to 3/8" x 3" Galvanized lag bolts c/w flat and lock washers/ 6- holes per float

Can I buy Floats direct that aren't sold on the website?

For now, no. Techstar floats are only sold through homedepot.com or Lowes.com as this creates an added benefit to the customer due to these stores subsidizing shipping much more than our company is able to.
