I NOTE 30 Select a location for the camera and attach it so securely that it cannot under any circumstances fall off and injure bystanders (e.g. by being knocked off by branches brushing over the roof of the vehicle). If installing the camera alters the vehicle height or length specified in the vehicle documents, your vehicle must be inspected by the appropriate authorities. Make sure that you are in possession of documents verifying that your vehicle has passed this inspection. Observe the following installation instructions: To provide a suitable viewing angle, the camera must be attached at a height of at least 2 m. Ensure that you have a firm place from which to work when mounting the camera. Ensure that the installation location of the camera is sufficiently firm (e.g. to prevent the camera from being knocked down by branches that may brush over the roof of the vehicle). Mount the camera bracket horizontally and in the middle of the rear of the vehicle (fig. 0, page 5). The most secure type of attachment is with screws fitted through the body. Please observe the following instructions: – There must be sufficient space for the mounting procedure behind the chosen installation location. – Suitable measures must be taken to prevent water penetrating through any holes made (e.g. by using screws and sealant and/or spraying the outer attachment parts with a sealant). – The location on the body where you wish to attach the camera must be rigid enough to allow the camera to be tightly fastened. Check beforehand that there is sufficient room for the drill head to come out on the other side (fig. 2, page 3). If you are not sure about the location you have chosen, consult the vehicle manufacturer or dealer.

When mounting the camera, proceed as follows: ➤ Hold the camera on the chosen location and mark at least two different points for the drill holes (fig. a, page 5). ➤ Using a hammer and centre punch, gently pre-punch the previously marked points to prevent the drill head from slipping off. If you want to screw on the camera with self-tapping screws (fig. b, page 5) A NOTICE! Risk of damage! The holder may only be attached to steel panels with a minimum thickness of 1.5 mm using self-tapping screws. ➤ Drill Ø 3 mm holes at the points you have just marked. ➤ Deburr all drill holes and apply rust-protection. ➤ Screw the camera bracket on with the 4 x 10 mm self-tapping screws. If you would like to attach the camera with threaded screws fitted through the construction (fig. c, page 5) A NOTICE! Risk of damage! Ensure that that nuts cannot be pulled through the body shell when they are tightened. Use larger washers or metal plates if necessary. ➤ Drill Ø 4.5 mm holes at the points you have just marked. ➤ Deburr all drill holes and apply rust-protection. ➤ Screw the camera bracket on with the M4 x 20 mm threaded screws. Depending on the thickness of the construction, you may require longer threaded screws. 31
