INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Before you begin, the temperature of the Brief should be above 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We suggest laying the Brief in the sunlight for 1 hour before installation.

1. Locate the rubber blade on front edge (Figure 1).


2. Place the Brief on top of Jeep. Insert rubber blade into Windshield Channel, working from one side of vehicle to the other (Figures 2 & 3).  


3. Locate 2 Velcro straps in each front corner of the Brief (Figure 4)

• Wrap Strap A over the top of the bar towards the inside of the vehicle (Figure 5). The Velcro of Strap A should be facing outward from the roll bar.

• Strap B wraps around the outside of the roll bar.

• Attach Strap B to Strap A on the underside of the roll bar (Figure 6).

• Do both driver and passenger sides of the vehicle.


4. Locate the Velcro flaps on each side of the roll bar. Open and wrap flaps around roll bar, pull tight and press together to close (Figure 7). Do both driver and passenger sides of the vehicle.  


5. Locate the center strap along the central roll bar. Run the center strap around the rear and under the central roll bar forward to the Footman Loop near the top center of the windshield. Run strap through Footman Loop and feed strap through its buckle securely (Figure 8).  


NOTE: The rear straps can be fastened in two different methods:

Option 1 shows how to attach the Brief to your vehicle using J-Clips.

Option 2 shows how to attach the Brief to your vehicle around the rear shoulder seat belts.

Option 1 (with J-Clip)

6. Feed the rear corner straps through the J-Clips (Figure 9) and place the J-Clip under a convenient attachment point, such as a rear corner rail or floor loop (Figure 10).  


7. Wrap the straps around the roll bar or seat belt shoulder harness. Feed the loose end through the buckle and pull tight (Figure 11). Be sure not to interfere with the seat belts safety and operation. Place the strap under the seat belt. Never install over the seat belt strap.


8. Locate the two side straps near the central roll bar. For each side, wrap the straps around the vertical roll bar, then feed the loose end through the buckle on the other end and pull tight (Figure 12). Tighten all straps (including center strap). Tie off loose strap ends.


9. Re-adjust Velcro and tighten all straps to assure a wrinkle-free fit.

Option 2 (without J-Clip)

10. Wrap the straps around the seat belt shoulder harness and roll bar. Feed the loose end through the buckle on the other end and pull tight (Figure 13). Be sure not to interfere with the seat belts safety and operation. Place the strap under the seat belt. Never install over the seat belt strap.



11. Locate two straps in the middle of each side of the Brief. For each side, wrap the straps around the vertical roll bar, then feed the loose end through the buckle on the other end and pull tight (Figure 14). Tighten all straps (including the center strap). Tie off loose strap ends.


12. Re-adjust Velcro and tighten all straps to assure a wrinkle-free fit.

13. Installation is now complete
