ROPE GUARD INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
recommend that the FlatLink or UltraHook first be removed from your
winch line prior to the Rope Guard installation. Then, remove all rubber
pieces from your FlatLink or UltraHook product. A little prying from a
flat blade screwdriver should do the trick in popping out the rubber
barbs. You will need to reinstall two of the rubber pieces after the
Rope Guard installation is completed. We recommend that you place the
FlatLink on top of a piece of wood on the ground or workbench surface
prior to hammering in the drive rivets. Be sure to orient the Rope Guard
in the correct direction (slot facing the rear) prior to proceeding
with the rivet installation. For the UltraHook, make sure that the plane
of the rubber pad surface is held flat to the wood surface for one side
of the rivet installation and pivot the UltraHook over to the other
surface for the remaining rivet installation. Now simply insert the 4
included drive rivets and using a ¼ inch punch, hammer the drive rivet
posts down until the posts are flush with the top of the rivet head.
Reinstall the rubber pads (lubricate the barbs) on the opposing side and
you are done.
