Common mistake to avoid when assembling a CRS1 bottom mount lifter
If you have purchased a CRS1 bottom mount cover lifter, be sure to exactly follow the steps outlined in the instruction manual, as improper installation could damage your cover lifter. The following graphic indicates the step that you should take extra care with when assembling the lifter.
