1. Choose position of clamps, based on pannier rack hoop and according to what you will use Add-on plate for. For example, make sure clamps won't interfere with tool that you plan to carry on the inside. Different mounting positions are possible. It is preferred that two clamp are on top side, two on bottom and one at each side.
2. This is proper way to insert clamps - "flat" part is on the inside, so Add-on plate will fit inside the hoop.
3. Compress each clamp, so it will be easier to install Add-on plate.
4. Align Add-on plate and secure it with bolts, washers and nuts. Easy way is to secure upper clamps first.
Washer should be inserted between clamp and nut.
Don't tighten up bolts and nuts before you align everything. First push Add-on plate to the inside, so it slides inside the hoop.
5. When you are sure everything is well aligned, tighten up all bolts and nuts. No need to tighten up too much, since safety nuts are used. Just make sure there is no free play between Add-on plate and clamp.
6. After first longer ride, check everything again and tighten up if needed.
B. ROTOPAX MOUNT
Rotopax can be mounted in various positions, up to your preferences and setup.
1. Use two M8 bolts and washers from the inside.
2. Use two aluminium spacers on the outside.
3. Then bolt Rotopax mount.
4. Rotopax container should "sit" tight on the clamp rubber.
Do not ride with just Rotopax mount (without Rotopax container on it). It is 2 minute job to dismount Rotopax mount.
C. WRENCH/TIRE IRONS BRACKETS
1. Install stainless steel brackets using provided button head bolts, washers and nuts. Brackets can be mounted in upper or lower position. No need to use washer on the outside, just one on the inside, between nut and bracket.
2. Install the tool you wish to carry and make sure fits well. Use self adhesive rubber pad between Add-on plate and tool or between bracket and tool, if needed. Bolt upper bolts and nuts and make sure tool is firmly in place.
D. TOOL TUBE
Depending on the bike, Tool tube can be mounted in several positions, with or without aluminum spacers. Make sure Tool tube don't rub against bike.
1. Remove Tool tube's cap and bolt it on Add-on plate. If needed, use provided aluminum spacers. Use large M6 washers between nut and Tool tube, to spread the load. Do not over tighten, but make sure there is no free play.
2. Make sure there is enough clearance between Tool tube and bike, wheel and brake calipers (when suspension is fully compressed).
4. Pay attention not to loose Tool tube's cap, it can fall off due to vibrations. Locking cap is recommended. Do not carry too heavy stuff in Tool tube!
