Draw a line 1 7/8 inches from one end of the board and label the line "Stern".
Locate a Bottom Section and note the bow arrow on the inside of the section.
The Snaptraxx Bunk will be assembled starting at the stern and building toward the bow.
Working on a solid surface such as a concrete floor, place the lumber into the Bottom Section.
Align the stern line (the one that you drew) with the end of the Bottom Section.
Be sure the bow arrow is pointing away from the stern line.
Place the first Top Section* over the Bottom Section encasing the lumber.
Always make sure the bow arrow is pointing in the same direction, away from the stern line.
*IMPORTANT: If the bunk contains Grip Sections they must go on first. If there is no Grip Sections start with Slip Sections.
Ensure that the stern line is aligned with the end of the Top Section.
Press firmly along the parts snapping the Top and Bottom Sections together.
Flip bunk over and install the second Bottom Section.
Position the groove of the section being installed over the tongue of the previously installed section.
Push down to snap the joint together.
*Important: The interlocking bellows (tongue and groove) connection must be properly aligned.
Holding the bottom section in place, flip the bunk over and install the next Top Section* over the Bottom Section encasing the lumber. The interlocking bellows (tongue and groove) connection must be properly aligned.
*IMPORTANT: If the bunk contains a second Grip Unit it must go on at this time.
If there are no other Grip Units continue with Slip Units.
The Photo below shows a top view of a properly interlocked bellows.
Repeat the assembly process flipping the board and snapping together the remaining sections.
Install the end caps.
Tap the End Cap to insure it is completely seated.
Ensure that the word "Snaptraxx" is upright.
Secure the End Cap to the lumber with the 2 stainless steel screws provided.
The area where the screws are to be located has a extremely thin wall section to allow the screws to penetrate,
eliminating the need for drilling a hole.
Your bunks are complete.
You are now ready to install the bunks on your trailer.
