#2 • The Fastest Option •
. . . . . . . . . . . . .((All Models)
Many installations are so simple and straight forward they can be done by just looking closely at the Illustrations. Find one close to yours, assemble the parts in a similar way, and bolt it on.
R&M uses Erector Set® and Lego®
logic - standardized parts assembled in different ways for different purposes.

▶︎ Slide the socket on the lead
. extension onto the drive nut on the
. lead screw as you set it into the
. notches in the extension cap.
. • If necessary, use the included Allen
. wrench to adjust the shaft collar so
. the socket stays on the drive nut..
▶︎ Bolt the two end plates to the outside
