CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
INITIAL INSTALLATION OF CLAMP PLATE CHANNEL
Before the CBC and mounting plate combination are mounted on the vehicle bed, the clamp plate
channel must be installed. A clamp plate channel is installed on either side of the mounting plate and
helps to secure the CBC/mounting plate combination to the vehicle bed.
To install the initial portion of the clamp plate assembly, position one clamp plate assembly spacer plate
(1) on the underside of the extension (2) that extends from the side of the rear mounting plate section (3).
Be sure to position the spacer plate with the countersunk hole side facing down. Align the holes (4) in the
spacer plate (1) with the holes (5) in the mounting plate extension (2).
Position the clamp plate channel (6) on the top surface of the mounting plate extension (2), aligning the
four holes (7) in the clamp plate channel (6) with the four holes (5) in the mounting plate extension (2).
While holding the spacer plate (1) and clamp plate channel (6) in position on the mounting plate extension
(2), install a 5/16-18 UNC x 1.28 inch long flat head screw (8) up through the spacer plate (1), mounting
plate extension (2), and exiting the top of the clamp plate channel (6).
Secure the screw (8) with one 5/16 inch flat washer (9), and 5/16 inch UNC hex locknut (10). Install the
remaining three flat head screws and associated hardware. Tighten all hardware securely.
Repeat for the opposite side of the CBC mounting plate.
