  4. Keeping the bed holder oriented as shown, load the spring / shoulder bolt / clamp assembly onto the end of the 2mm hex driver and compress the spring.  Place fender washer onto the threaded portion of the shoulder bolt. Approach the bed clamp from the bottom, and thread the threaded section of the shoulder bolt up through the hole, turning to engage the nut. Repeat for the other side.
