BLACK MAX SERIES - MAXIMUM SECURITY
SPARE TIRE THEFT PROTECTION
Lower the spare tire for access to the winch mechanism, frame cross-member and the black triangular metal shield to the rear of the winch mechanism. Locate the two small holes stamped in the shield, parallel to the flat forward edge.
Use the provided hardware, consisting of a 3/8" x 1" bolt, locknut, and two flat washers to attach the U-bracket to the metal sheild. Use a 3/8" drill bit to enlarge the 1/4" hole on the left (driver's) side of the metal shield. Install the 3/8" bolt with one flat washer through the mounting hole in the U-bracket from the bottom side of the metal sheild, with the second flat washer and locknut on the inside of the sheild. Position the U-bracket as shown and tighten the locknut.
Install the end of the lock bar through the holes in both legs of the U-bracket,with the grooved end facing toward the rear of the vehicle. Place the crimp-ring retainer in the groove and crimp closed with pliers.
Raise the spare tire while guiding the lower end of lock bar through the lug hole least obstructed by the winch cable retaining plate in the center of the wheel. The lock bar must remain vertical as spare tire is returned to the full up/stored position.
SPECIAL BLACK MAX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:(1) Remove the key from the lock cylinder. (2)Place the Black Max lock assembly over the end of the lock bar with the bar cover/seal end up. (3)Slide the lock assembly upward until the bar cover/seal is compressed in the tapered surface of the lug hole. (4)Push in on the "Press To Lock" button with the lock assembly still held firmly against the wheel, to engage the dead bolt lock mechanism with the groove in the lock bar.
