Assembling and Installing our Rear Ladder

Installing our ladder is quick and easy, but there are a few tips that can make it much easier.

We've included some foam pads to ensure your paint doesn't get scratched, and there is no drilling required.

1. Apply padding to the mounts

Try and get the padding right in to the corners, an old eftpos card (or similar) can make this easier.  Double sided foam tape can work even better, as it'll ensure the top of the ladder doesn't slide side to side. 

2. Assemble the ladder

Above shows how the ladder is assembled. Assemble everything except for the bottom bracket (left of the image). Don't tighten the top brackets just yet (right of the above picture).

3. Mounting

Once the ladder is all together (excluding the bottom bracket), line the top mounts up to the top of your rear door. The left mount will sit a bit higher, due to the shape of the door. Once these mounts are sitting in the right place on the door, tighten the mounts to the ladder. 

Next, mount the bottom bracket. This will pull the ladder downwards and hold it tightly in place.  If it doesn't pull the ladder down tight, remove the thick nolathane spacers.
