After you receive your portable ramp through a common carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc) please open the package immediately and inspect the contents for any damage.
When you are satisfied with the quality, simply lay the ramp in the general area of its intended position. If you purchased a single fold ramp, simply unfold the ramp as if it were a giant book. Once open, flip the rip like you would a blanket so the black non skid surface is visible.
If you purchased a multi-fold or tri-fold ramp model, there is a second step involved. Like a single fold ramp, unfold as if it’s a giant book; this will allow the ramp to expand to its largest width. Once done, there are two “legs” that need to be flipped allowing the ramp to reach its largest length. Again, just like the single fold ramp you may need to flip it so the black non skid surface is visible.
To carry a single fold or tri-fold ramp, simply fold the legs where there are hinges until no further folds can be made. Please be sure to locate the strap beforehand and secure when the ramp is closed to avoid injury. Also please be sure to locate the carry handle located on the side or bottom of the ram – this will allow for easier transportation. To carry a multi-fold ramp, you have two choices – fold the parts the same way you unfolded, being mindful of the strap and carry handle, or remove the center pin, allowing the ramp to split into two pieces, each with their own carry handle.
Regarding the roll-up-ramp, there will be straps holding the structure together. Please undue the straps and unroll the ramp to its full length and width.
