Allow 30 minutes for installation
For proper installation read very carefully
Tools required: Tape measure, 4 C-clamps or 4 canopy clamps (for
option 1), drill & 7/16 inch drill bit (option 2), two 30 inch
high saw horses or a crate / box, 9/16 & 3/4 inch sockets w/
ratchet, crescent wrench, wire snips, 2 people for tray install.
1. Clamp bedrail runners to canopy
with the ball studs towards the front. Leave about 1 inch of
space between the steel runner and the front of the canopy. If
choosing the bolt option DO NOT drill and bolt yet. If you have
channel style canopy rails you may need to use the 3/8 x 4 inch
aluminum spacers, countersink screws and coarse thread nylock
nuts on the bottom of the clamp / bolt tabs, only if necessary.
2. Install leg sockets and legs on
the adjustable tabs loosely with 1/2 inch washers, lock washers
and bolts. Make sure the two hole tabs on the top of the legs
are facing each other. Set legs on lowest setting. Adjust the
leg socket spacing to 4 foot 6 inches. Rotate rear legs 90
degrees forward to allow room for the tray to be placed.
3. Insert 2 1/2 inch bolts with
washers down through each corner of the main frame. Place 30
inch saw horses, crate or box in the truck bed, with 2 people
place the frame & tray assembly on top with the handle facing
back. DO NOT disassemble the tray from the frame, this is tuned
and adjusted from the factory. Doing so may void your warranty.
Bolt leg tabs to tray assembly using bolts, washers and fine
thread nylock nuts. Make sure when tightening the sockets are
properly adjusting in the slotted tabs on the rail runners.
4. Now that all components are
bolted together, move Cargobat to desired height and location
leaving at least 1 inch of space between the canopy and Cargobat.
When tightening leg bolts make sure to tighten enough so the
sockets pinch the legs. Now you may drill and bolt to the
bedrail if desired. If clamping you must use the number of
clamps the canopy manufacturer specifies in addition to using 4
clamps for the Cargobat.
5. Screw the nylon ball sockets on
the end of the shocks. Install shocks by attaching the 1/4 inch
piston to the aluminum tray first, then attach the 3/4 inch ram
to the rail runners (this may take 2 people). The sockets should
snap over the ball studs without removing the metal clips. Be
very careful not to bend the shocks during installation. Check
for proper operation.
6. Make sure to carefully read the
warning and usage instructions prior to use.
