Rear MTB Specific

See Video or image below:

1) Feed the velcro strap (a) through the holes on the top of the RearGuard with the soft loop material on the outside (NB: the holes are designed to be a tight fit to stop the velcro sliding when fitting)
2) Pinch the sides of the RearGuard hard behind the clip-on arms (b) and slide through the rear seat rails, push the clip-on arms (b) over the top of the rear seat rails until they clip-on
3) Pull the locking arm (c) down the front of the seat post between the front rails, do not attach the velcro yet
4) Now attach the velcro strap (a) very TIGHT by wrapping over and around the rear rails ensuring that the plastic buckle sits between the rails
5) You can now see which slots you need to use on the FRONT locking arm (c) to ensure the velcro fits right under the head of the seat post clamp (must be the highest position available). Now feed the velcro strap (d) through as shown and fit TIGHTLY (NB: you may need to remove the RearGuard to do this the first time)
6) You must cut off the excess slots from the FRONT locking arm (c) following the
cut lines provided
7) You must ensure you check that the velcro does not catch on your legs or clothing from the FRONT locking arm (c), if the velcro is not right under the seat or high enough to clear your legs you MUST choose a higher slot

Rearguard Road Specific

VELCRO STRAPS MUST BE FED THROUGH AS SHOWN BELOW AND LEFT ON

1) Feed the Velcro strap (a) through the slots on the RearGuard with the hook and loop side facing upwards (outside)
(NB: the holes are designed to be a tight fit to stop the Velcro sliding when fitting)
2) Pinch the sides of the body of RearGuard (hard) behind the clip-on arms (b) and slide through the rear seat rails
3) Push both the arms (b) and the Velcro strap (a) over the top of the saddle rail both sides (from the inside)
NB: you can be quite aggressive if the fit is tight, it’s important that all the arms and Velcro sit on the outside of the rail
4) Now loosely attach the Velcro strap (a) through the plastic buckle ensuring that the plastic buckle finishes up between the rails, now centre the guard at the rear
5) This next bit is important, once loosely fitted you need to undo and hold the strap with one hand, and then push the guard in from the rear and then tighten the Velcro strap back up TIGHT to finish
NB: Optimal fit is where the front of the guard rests on the top of the seat post although this is not super important
