How to attach the Meat Shelf and Load Panel

posted in: Info | 0

The Meat Shelf and Load Panel attach the exact same way to our frame panel.  The only difference between the two is that the meat shelf then attaches to the back of the bag vs: the load panel is designed to be used as a stand alone product to haul just about anything you can think of out.  They are attached to 1″ webbing loops that are sewn to the frame panel with a quick attach ladder lock buckle.  Once we get the buckles in place we almost always leave them in place and just remove the meat shelf or load panel webbing if we want to take them off.

On the pic you can see the two webbing loops that are sewn roughly 8″ up from the bottom of the frame panel.  These two loops will connect to the quick attach ladder lock buckles that will be slid onto the webbing ends of either the meat shelf or load panel when you get it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following pics detail how to attach the quick attach ladder locks.

Once part way slid on its best to pull the webbing loop through to allow room to attach the smaller side. Most often its best to use a small screwdriver, keys, etc to help you get the smaller side on.

Once you get the loop attached, slide the webbing from the meat shelf or load panel on. With this webbing you can adjust the height that the meat shelf or load panel sits. The higher the better but depending on the load you may want to slide it down some. If attaching the Meat shelf do the exact same process on the back of the bag. If you are attaching the load panel once you do the two on the frame you are done.

One trick you can do is once you have the height set where you want it for the meat shelf or load panel you can loop the webbing back through once again to completely lock it in place.
