Setup and Operation Instructions
Read the ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at the
beginning of this document including all text under subheadings therein
before set up or use of this product.
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY: Make sure the vehicle is turned off and in
gear or park, with the emergency brake engaged and the wheels blocked.
Make sure the Ramp is completely open and the securing chains and hooks are
secured onto the vehicle. Make sure the Ramp is clean and dry before loading.
Figure A: Components
When folded, the Ramp will be
wrapped in the Safety Chains and
Hooks. Release the hooks and
unfold the Ramp completely.
2. Make sure the tailgate the ramp
will sit on is dry and clean.
3. Sit the Tongues (angled lips) of the
Ramp on the tailgate. Stretch the
Safety Chain on each side of the Ramp
up into the inside of the truck bed.
4. Attach the hook on each Safety
Chain to a secure attachment point
on the inside of the truck bed.
WARNING! Safety chains must be
connected to secure attachment
points able to withstand the pulling
force of loading. They must also be
taut enough to prevent the ramp from
coming off the vehicle being loaded.
5. Pull the loading ramp back until
the chains are tight. If most of the
edge or the entire edge of the ramp
is off of the edge of the vehicle
the chains need to be adjusted or
shorter chains must be used.
1. Remove the bolt and washer that
hold the safety chain to the ramp.
2. Reinsert the bolt through a link that
will shorten the chain so the loading
ramp can not be pulled backwards
more than an inch or two.
3. Make sure that the bolt is properly
tightened and the washer prevents the
bolt from slipping through the chain link.
4. Adjust the other chain to equal length.
