Step 5: Slide the license plate rods into the two tubes located on the base plate. Slide the rods
into the tubes until the rods hit the pull pin. Simply pull the ring on the pull pin and advance the
rods. Release ring and continue to advance rods until the pull pin locks into place. NOTE: The
rods and spring loaded pull pin are required to be sprayed periodically with WD-40 or any
other silicone type spray lube. Failure to do so could result in either the failure of the pull pin
or the rods becoming difficult to remove or reinsert. Note: In harsh environments, such as
areas where roads are either salted or sanded in the winter, spraying of the rods and pull pin
should be performed on a regular basis. Failure to provide this maintenance may void your
warranty. See figure 3. In some occasions the license plate may require a little adjustment to
level. Simply pull pin and slide plate out approximately two inches, grab frame at arrows (See
figure 4) and rotate. If plate is high on left or right side, rotate high side down slightly and
release. Verify alignment and repeat as necessary. Once leveled plate will remain level.
