Tools you will need
-Impact driver and drill (4mm-10mm) -13mm socket and 13mm spanner -Right angle -Stanley knife -G clamps -Screws -Spirit level
Kick board, this part is screwed into the ply floor of your van and is what the seat will rest on.
Seat base, Will move forward into a bed position and rest on the kick board.
Back rest, folds flat and makes up the middle part of the 'bed'.
Hinge sets, These are numbered to match what sections to fit them to.
Bracket. This is the section which bolt to the bed to the van.
Step One- Hinge Assembly
For this you will need two 13mm spanners or a 13mm spanner and 13mm socket.
-Firstly take the supplied bolt and place a washer onto it.
-Place the bolt through the large arm which controls the hinge system.
-Next add another washer to the bolt.
-Then pass the bolt through the back rest.
-Add another washer to the bolt.
- Then pass the assembly and bolt together through the final seat base hole.
-Add the final washer and attach the nut.
- Tighten with your 13mm spanner and socket. Do not torque them up fully as this will stop the mechanics of the bed functioning.
Step Two- Kick board Assembly
Take the provided bolt and place it through the hinged system and kick board frame. Next place a washer on the bolt. Finally add on the nut and tighten.
Step three - Mock fitting the bed
At the point where the bed will attach to the van we need to clear the space of any sound deadening or insulation we might have fitted.
What you need to check
Make sure the kick board frame sits at 90° with the floor.
Secondly, that when the bed is in the sleeping position that it is level.
Once you are happy with where the bed sits you can fix the kick board to the floor with some pan head screws to mark its place .
Step four- Marking and drilling the holes
Where the bracket meets the engine bay bulk-head you need to mark where to drill your holes.
Copy this process for both sides of the bed.
Before you drill, make sure to check the surrounding around where you are drilling and on the other side to make sure you do not drill through anything of importance.
We used a 10mm drill bit for the hole.
Step five- bolting the bed in place
For this next step we recommend you call on a second pair of hands as you will need to fasten the nut and bolt from both sides in order to tighten it.
You will need one large washer on the interior side and a metal plate (see photo) on the outer side.
Once you have done this you can refasten the pan head screws into the kick board frame for a final fit.
