1. Adjust the seat all the way back.
2. Follow steps 2-4 of the Seat Mount manual for attaching arms to tabs.
3. Remove seat bolts using E12 External Torx socket.
4. Slide the long side of the tabs under the seat rail and align the bolt holes. The arms should extend on the inner sides of the rail.
5. Hand-tighten the seat bolts to secure the tabs, but do NOT fully tighten.

6. At this point it’s a good idea to gauge how far the mounting platform will have to extend once installed.
7. Follow steps 3-4 in the Seat Mount manual to attach your bracket to the mounting platform.
8. Attach mounting platform to arms per step 8 in the manual.

9. Once everything is in place and secure, yet moveable, push the support bar back, flush against the ledge on the floor.
10. Before tightening completely, it’s a good idea to test fit your extinguisher. Now is the time to make any adjustments.
11. Once everything is where you want it, tighten down all the fastening points.

12. VERY IMORTANT! Make sure you tighten your seat mounting bolts back to spec.
