First stand the upright on the floor, against the flat side wall area near the
tailgate. Drill mark through the holes with 1/4" bit. Remove the screws
holding in your tail-light assembly and "visually" align those marks and
inside cavity of the tail-lights. There should not be anything that would
impede your drilling the two holes into this area. Start with a 1/4 inch bit
the bottom hole, then open this up to a hole just large enough to fit the plus-nut. You are now ready to
install the plus-nuts with the tool kit supplied!

Pictures above show the deluxe #1 version but the basic version is
similar except conventional
bolts and locknuts are used on older flange
models instead of the Nutsert system.
(Nutserts are used for EASY on-off and
required on all newer model trucks).
Be sure to tie down EACH end of your canoe or kayak to EACH corner of your bumber (or to hood loops on each side).
Also, tie your craft down at each crossbar or rack.
This way your craft is secured to the rack, as well as secured to the vehicle.
