If winch post is too long, check winch post cutting instructions. Then tighten the telescopic 3/8″ bolt on winch arm, locking up bolt with 3/8″ nut.

The forward safety strap is for hooking into the swivel part of the winch belt hook, NOT the inflatable’s bow eye.
Unwind the winch belt and place the hook near the entry rollers.
Attach the winch belt hook to the bow eye of the tender. Using the winch belt, lift and place the bow eye of the tender onto the entry rollers.
Hold the belt taunt and winch inflatable onto the Tend’r Roller® system, 6″ to 9″ short of the winch bow rollers, located at winch, or the stern lift eyes, directly above the rear hold down belt buckles.
Hook the front safety belt to the swivel part of the winch belt hook, then carefully step into your inflatable and attach the 2 rear hold down belts, using stainless hook provided with system.
These 2 belts should be in a taunt state when being attached. They are adjusted at the bottom end with two belt strap buckles.
After adjusting your rear hold down belts, with the provided buckles, and have attached them to the eye bolts, that have been reversed to the outside (stern) of your inflatable, step out carefully and disconnect the front safety strap.
Winch the inflatable snuggly up onto your bow rollers with the winch belt hook between the 2 bow rollers.
Your inflatable is now secure on your Tend’r Roller® system.
Last, attach the forward safety belt on the swivel section of the winch belt hook, which is now between the bow rollers and winch.
Belts should be checked periodically for wear & tear and replaced.
