Q: Is it easy to remove a Load-Lid?
A: Load-lid is the easiest to remove lid available. Simply remove the whole lid by undoing four internal wing bolts, disconnect the gas struts, lock the lid into the mounting frame and then remove. No tools - It's that easy!
Q: Will I need tools to fit a Load-Lid?
A: Load-lid is the easiest lid available to fit, no tools are required when fitting with an under rail liner. It simply drops into place!
If your lid is fitted with an over-rail liner, you will need a holesaw to allow the clamps to get under the liner to fit to the tray.
