Cut the “tailgate hole pattern” templates from the 15248-4 sheet. Position and tape the vane template
on the back side (the side of the tailgate that would be to the inside of the pickup box) of the vane
just below the Husky Tailgate center handle. See images above. The hole locations should be centered
horizontally and positioned as in Photo 19, 7/8 inch from the top edge and 1 1/8 inch from the bottom
edge of the vane. Center punch the two hole locations and remove the template. Predrill the two
center punched hole locations with a 5/64 inch (.078) drill bit perpendicular to the surface of the vane.
Then drill with an 11/64 inch (.172) drill bit. The predrill prevents the larger drill from wandering and
mislocating the holes. Position and tape the bottom template on the bottom of the husky tailgate. The
hole locations should be centered horizontally and 1/2 inch from the outside edge and 1 inch from
the inside edge of the D shaped bottom tubing. Center punch the two hole locations and remove the
template. Drill the two center punched hole locations with an 9/64 inch (.140) drill bit perpendicular to
the surface of the D shape tube.

Wrap the harness around the camera/bracket assembly per the above photo and place the 15248-2
front housing in place. Position the two push rivets in the 5/32 holes on each side of the front housing
and with your thumb snap them into place through the front and rear housing. Install two #8 X 1/2
phillips truss head screws through the lower portion of the 15248-2 and into the bottom of the Husky
Tailgate and tighten.
Place the camera harness connectors through the hole in the pickup bed they originally came out of
and install your Husky Tailgate. From under the rear of the pickup or through the license plate opening,
reconnect the camera harness connectors and reinsert the harness retainer into its mounting hole.
