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 can be mounted to the vehicle bed, the clamp plate
channel must be installed. Two clamp plate channels are installed on either side of the mounting plate
assembly and secure the CBC/mounting plate combination to the vehicle bed.
To complete the initial installation 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 holes 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) as shown 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
Install the spacer plate (1) and clamp plate channel (6) in position on the mounting plate extension (2),
install a 5/16-24 UNF x 1.28 inch long flat head screw (8) up through the spacer plate (1), mounting plate
extension (2), 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 UNF hex locknut (10). Install the
remaining three flat head screws and associated hardware. Tighten all hardware securely.
Repeat for the remaining clamp plate channel location.
