CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
Before using the installation tool, inspect the condition of the jackscrew
threads before use. If the tool has been used previously, the jackscrew
threads may require a few drops of a light machine oil. If this is the initial
use of the tool, no additional lubrication will be required.
To install a threaded RIVNUT, thread the RIVNUT fastener (4) onto the threaded end (5) of the
installation tool (1) included with the mounting kits. Be sure that the end of the installation tool is tight
against the head of the fastener.
With the threaded RIVNUT (4) installed on the installation tool (1), insert the threaded RIVNUT into the
hole (6) on the vehicle bed (7).
Insert the hex wrench (2) into the socket (8) at the top of the installation tool (1). Insert the jaws of a
adjustable or fixed wrench (9) on the nut (3) of the installation tool (1).
While holding the hex wrench (2) stationary and the installation tool (1) at a right angle to the vehicle bed
(7), turn the nut (3) in a clockwise direction keeping track of the number of turns.
Turn the nut (3) in a clockwise direction until firm resistance indicates that the fastener is completely set.
This will be approxmately 1-1/2 to 2 turns.
Once the threaded RIVNUT is completely set, turn the nut (3) in a counter-clockwise direction to break its
grip with the threaded RIVNUT. Remove both wrenches (2 & 9) from the installation tool (1).
Remove the threaded insert installation tool (1) from the threaded RIVNUT by turning the entire tool by
hand in a counter-clockwise direction.
