NOTE

Hardware shown in this illustration is not provided due to varying installation requirements.

Thread all the wires through the round hole in the center of the mounting plate.

Install the monitor onto the mounting plate, using at least six of the screws provided.

Attach the monitor mounting plate by screwing through the headliner and into the existing roof supports or the wood bracket you made (see TIP below).
