The Cargo Bed Cover is shipped mounted to a modified pallet that must be removed prior to installation.
The Unit Maintenance technician should inspect the equipment before it is used. Following is a list of
functions which must be performed upon receipt of the CBC:
Unpacking. Before installation and use, the Cargo Bed Cover must be removed from its packing pallet
and cleaned of packing material and other foreign debris. The CBC should be serviced in accordance with
Inspection. The equipment must be inspected for damage incurred during shipment. If the equipment
has been damaged in shipment, report the damage on SF 364, Report of Discrepancy.
Packing list verification. Check the equipment against the packing list, located inside the box containing
the mounting kit, to see if the shipment is complete. Report all discrepancies in accordance with DA Pam
Pre-operation services. Service any damaged equipment, as necessary, using Unit Maintenance
procedures in Chapter 5 to restore equipment to operable condition.
REMOVING THE CARGO BED COVER FROM ITS SHIPPING PALLET
The Cargo Bed Cover is shipped wrapped in plastic and mounted to a modified shipping pallet (1) using 8
lag screws and washers (2).
Before separating the CBC from its shipping pallet (1), remove all protective plastic wrap. Slit the plastic
with a utility knife in several locations and remove it from the CBC.
If the CBC is shipped in a retracted condition, the CBC must be extended to its operational position as
outlined in the section of WP 0005 entitled EXTENDING THE CARGO BED COVER TO AN
OPERATIONAL POSITION, prior to removing the lag screws and washers (2),. Extending the CBC to its
operational position will improve access to the lag screws and put the CBC in the condition necessary to
lift it onto the vehicle using the Lift Rings.
Once the CBC is in its fully extended position, remove all 8 lag screws and washers (2). There are two lag
screws in the carrier mounting angles (3) on each of the four walls of the CBC. These lag screws hold the
CBC to the shipping palette (1).
If a mounting kit (4) has been provided with the CBC, it will be necessary to cut the shipping straps (5)
