HOW TO INSTALL AND REMOVE STAKE POCKET BRACKET
Installation is a series of steps, quick and simple.
Loosen the four outside bolts but only 1/4 to 1/2 turn, don’t need much.
Adjust the bracket to it's smallest size.
If the bracket is to large for the stake hole, then remove the expansion
plate attached to wedge. The plate is required for the new extra-large
trucks made today and is not required on most trucks.
Pick the hole you want and direction to face ( inboard or out) and start
tightening the center screw. As the bracket starts to tighten, wiggle
the bracket around so it will settle into the shape of the stake hole.
Continue tightening until satisfied. As you tighten all of the pressure is
contained in the top plate. There is no downward pressure onto the
truck bed at all.
Tighten down the four outside bolts to totally secure the top plate.
After the bolts are tight, grab hold of plate and give one last hard shake.
If anything moves, tighten the center bolt some more. It will not benecessary to loosen the outside bolts at this point, but instead check that they are still tight after tightening the center.
Removal is just as easy but requires a hammer or something like it.
Loosen the four outside bolts but only 1/2 turn, don’t need much.
Unscrew the center screw until it sticks up about 3/4 of an inch or so.
Tap on the screw until it goes down with however much force it takes,
which in most cases has proven to be not that much.
The bracket will lift straight up and out of the hole with no problem. If still
tight simply loosen the center screw more to make the bracket smaller.
Also if for some reason it was needed, ( bed liner, etc.) the mount plate can be as much as
1/2 inch above the truck bed and still work.
