It is very difficult. My parents and I spent about 3 hours on it, and my husband came home and did it in about 5 minutes. You have to actually put the hard-wood board and frame part in the liner. You have to pull it really tight, and the bit of printed material with the Warning sign should fold from the outside in. This puts the ruffle part close to the top--but on the outside. The buttons will snap all around, and the strappy things on the bottom hook around that bottom basket part and snap. You will be able to see the wood before you put the little mattress back in. I really hope that helps--we were so frustrated.

It seems backwards when you do it, get the mesh insets on either side and the ruffle turned the right way, and the top of it snaps onto the board that goes under the mattress, hope this helps!

How to attah table leg frame to table bottom panel?

Not quite sure what part(s) you're having problems with. But I'll tell you what I know...

There is a table top (a bunch of boards joined edge-to edge). Under this top is a skirt. The skirt is typically a box that doesn't need the table top for structural support - the legs are attached to the skirt (in the corners). Depending on how the skirt is designed, the legs may be removable (makes the skirt more complex).

Attaching the skirt to the table top can be done in many ways. The best way is to allow for expansion/contraction of the table top. The edge to edge combination of the table top makes for a larger expansion/contraction than the skirt. So the skirt should have a slot instead of a hole for a screw through to the table top.

If you just screw everything together, it will work. But if moisture and/or temperature changes, you may separate the table top, or joints in the skirt.

Won't start

This engine may well have seized, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.

Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up

Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!

How the hell does the skirt go on this piece of ****?

Put the metal frame on the board - then turn them upside down. The skirt has four slits - where the knobs on the bottom of the board come through - pull the material tautly while snapping on buttons.

Quetion about aftemarket side skirts....

honestly your best bet would to be installing the side skirts with pop-rivets. Get a manual pop riveter. You can purcjase this at any local hardware store, also you will need to purchase some pop rivets. Ask a sales associate what sise you will need, by telling them what you are riveting they should be able to help you find the right size and length.Start by marking exactly where your side skirts will be on the car. Make sure to align the skirts perfectly in mock up so you wont run into any issues with the door rubbing against the newly installed part. mark your holes for where you want to put the rivets placing one every 9 inches to a foot apart. You may also use fewer or more rivets it all depends on how secure you feel with your work. Next after all your holes have been marked drill holes in the spots that you have marked, this will allow you to lign your side skirt back up and mark the frame. Once the frame is marked you will need to drill the marked holes out. Be sure that the drill bit you use does not exceed the size of the stud on your rivet. This will cause the shield to seat wrong and make it that much easier to putt out of the frame. Finally after all your holes are drilled install your rivets and break off the studs. You should be good to go. Word of advice if your car is allready paintes and your side skirts arent, but you are planning to paint them after installation, DONT! drinn your holes in the kis sand any rough edges down and paint it will save you time and hassle in the long run trust me! hopes this helped
