    I assume you're just talking about the 4 that go in the cargo rails. Just slide 'em in. You'll see how they work. There's a part on the inside that spins to tighten or loosen them, you also push this in so that the part that fits inside the pushes out allowing them to slide down the rails. Kinda hard to explain.

    I think you guys are right, they are just so new that they are tight and hard to push on. Gotta get some man juice in me to work on those babes.

    The end caps of the bed rails pop right off if you press on the part in the middle that releases the latch.

    You do not need to pop off the end caps on the rails to install these.

    Loosen the spin wheel on the cleat. Notice there is a spring below it. Now push down on the spin wheel while holding the body of the cleat--notice that the bolt/foot extends from the bottom.

    Now, insert the bolt/foot so that its long direction is parallel to the rail. You might have to slide it down a few inches to a foot either direction until you find one of the spots where it can push into the rail. Once it is in, push it and turn the body of the cleat 90 degrees. The foot will turn with it, and little plastic ribs on the body of the cleat will 'snap' into alignment with the rail. If it won't turn, you either need to loosen the spin wheel more, or you aren't at one of the points where the cleat can easily insert into the rail.

    Try sliding the cleat back and forth (you might need to press on the spin wheel) until you find the spots where it 'clicks' into place on the rail. You only want to tighten the spin wheel at these locations! So, find one, and tighten the spin wheel.

    If you want to move the cleat, just loosen the spin wheel until you can push the wheel down and slide the cleat left or right. Find another 'notch' where it clicks into place, and tighten the wheel.

    To remove, loosen the spin wheel a lot, push it down, and then lift and turn the body of the cleat 90 degrees.

    Is that Theron's Frozen Custard? Google maps says it's right there on the corner by your apartment.

    Looks like Taylor's Cocktail Lounge is also convenient for some evening libation's.
