STANDARD SERIES - HIGH SECURITY
SPARE TIRE THEFT PROTECTION
3500 SERIES H/DUTY PICKUP
Lower spare tire for access to the winch mechanism mounted above the frame cross-member. Locate the U-shaped steel bar that centers and supports the spare tire in the full/up stored position.
STEP TWO Place the U-bracket over the steel bar as shown, with the D-shaped hole facing the left frame rail. Insert the short bent over end of the lock bar through the round hole side of the U-bracket. Rotate the bar until the flat side of the bar aligns with flat side of the D-shaped hole in the other side of the U-bracket. Position the end of the bar through the U-bracket. Release and let the bar swing downward to a vertical position, which locks the end of the bar to the U-bracket.
STEP THREE 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 the spare tire is raised to the full up/stored position.
STEP FOUR The PVC lock bar cover/seal is designed to center and hold the lock firmly against the tapered surface of the lug hole. Hold lock inverted with the PVC cover/seal end up. Place lock over the end of the lock bar. Slide lock upward against the tapered surface of the lug hole and rotate to engage lock mechanism with the lock bar groove.
