The structure of the transport system in a manualexplains that is also in the box. The manual describes theassembly in German and French. Additional graphics facilitate assembly of the carrier. All required handles are written exactly. So the assembly is carried out very quickly. We needed about 20 minutes to the transport system of EAL GmbH was mounted.

Practical test of the support
After the first installation, we connected the Eufab 11514 clutch carrier hatch with the couplings ofvarious test vehicles .
