Setting Up a U-Pack Bulkhead

* For security, it is recommended that you cover your belongings with a tarp or cardboard before installing the bulkhead.

The bulkhead is intended to act as a separator and is not designed to withstand the entire weight of your belongings if the load shifts in transit.

In order to keep objects from shifting, items must be secured with ropes, bungee cords, or ratchet straps prior to installing the bulkhead.

Safety Measures: Protective gloves should be worn while assembling and disassembling the bulkhead. We recommend using two people for setup and removal.

Lockable Bulkhead Setup Instructions

Step 1

Align the first bulkhead panel with the vertical trailer post. Place the T-shaped end of the top and bottom bulkhead load bar into the slot on the vertical trailer post. Be sure that each T-shaped end is firmly pressed down into the slot.

Step 2

Pull the bulkhead panel you just installed away from your shipment at a slight angle. This will make it easier to connect the second bulkhead panel.

Step 3

Connect the bulkhead panels by sliding the load bar ends together until the pinholes are aligned. Insert the locking pin through each load bar.

NOTE: Ensure that the handles are completely open when sliding the bars.

Step 6 (optional)

Place a lock in both black handles. Bulkhead is now securely locked.

NOTE: Lock shank size should be 2" minimum length and 1/4" or smaller diameter.

ATTENTION: Failure to leave the ramp on the door side of the bulkhead will result in additional charges.

Stand the bulkhead upright against your shipment perpendicular to the trailer floor. Pump the black handle until pads touch both trailer walls. Then pump the black handle an additional 10-12 times to secure the bulkhead inside the trailer. Do this for the top and bottom loadbars.
