Does anybody have a picture of how the top should be mounted to the frame of a 39 tall? The way mine was mounted does not seem right. I tried looking for pictures showing the top but can't find any. I included a picture of the top of mine, are the holes correct for mounting? Thanks for help, Brian

On mine there are 4 bolts on the inside that mount to the top plate of the frame. I'm not sure why yours has holes through the top, that isn't right to me?
Darin
The top should have rails in it, for lack of a better term. Towards the fronts of the top, there is a slot opening where a bolt that has a square area under the head to keep it from turning drops through, which in turn drops through 4 holes in the top plate of frame where you tighten it down. Maybe this additional info helps?

That's what I thought, it was kind of goofy where they had bolts holding down the top. Could someone send a picture of the correct way it should mount. Thank you!

OK Brian...so I had some time today, took the top off mine, and took a few pics, assuming you hadn't got your answer yet. smile
I know photos always help.

Ok, after seeing pictures I understand what you were saying!! I am missing more of the lid(bracket) that is probably why they went through the top. THANK YOU Darin for the pictures and replies!!
