OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
HOISTING THE CARGO BED COVER USING THE LIFT RINGS
Do not lift the Cargo Bed Cover (CBC), in its retracted (lowered) position.
The CBC must be in its extended (fully raised) position prior to using the
lift rings for lifting.
Do not use the lift rings to lift a CBC with an installed payload greater
than 1100 pounds. Lift rings should only be used to lift an empty CBC
that is not mounted to a vehicle.
A Cargo Bed Cover, that has been installed on a vehicle should only be
hoisted using the lifting points on the vehicle.
Make sure to use handling equipment rated for the equipment it will be
lifting. Do not use handling equipment rated for less than the gross
weight of the CBC when handled by itself or the CBC plus the vehicle
when the CBC has been installed on a vehicle.
Failure to follow these lift warnings may result in severe injury or death to
personnel or damage to equipment.
Do not attach a hoisting sling to the CBC lift rings in such a way as to
create an angle between the cable and the CBC roof surface that is
LESS THAN 45 . Attaching the cable at any angle less than 45 will
result in excessive strain on the lift rings which may result in damage to
the Cargo Bed Cover.
Lift rings (1) are provided on the fore and aft top edges of the Cargo Bed Cover to allow it to be lifted onto
and off of a vehicle bed. The lift rings must be used only to lift a CBC that is mechanically detached from
To lift the CBC using the lift rings, the CBC must first be in its fully extended and locked position. Attach
the hoisting sling (2) to a crane or similar piece of equipment.
