To install the Folding Kayak Carrier on your Polaris XPEDITION XP 5, ADV or ADV 5, follow these steps:

1. Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface, ensure it is in PARK and remove the key.

5. Align a channel nut parallel, underneath the aligned hole on the bar and loosely install the fastener assembly into the nut.

6. Repeat this process for the remaining channel nuts and fastener assemblies.

7. Insert the channel nuts into the open slots in the rack and slide the bar to the desired location away from the opening in the rack.

8. Tighten the fasteners until fully seated with included tool. (If torqued, use a 5mm Allen socket.)
