  1. Lay out the frame parts as shown in the image above.
  2. Attach the Universal Seat Mounts to the center of two of the cross bars.
  3. Place the yokes upside down with the narrow end up.
  4. Install the U-bolts on the inner yoke LoPro fittings, add the washers and the nuts, leaving them loose. Slide the two inner side rails in through the U-bolts, then tighten the nuts.
  5. Turn the yokes right side up so that the inner rails are supporting the frame. Follow step 2 with the outer rails.
  6. Set the seat, foot, and cross bars in place and add the U-bolts. Adjust the cross bar so that it fits against the cooler or dry box snugly. (It may be necessary to remove the U-bolts to make adjustments.)
  7. Add seats and oar mounts.
  8. Check to be sure that all of the U-bolts are tight. Periodically check the tightness of all nuts and bolts.
