Yep, the only thing that I did was to use some nail polish and put the letters T, S, or B on the appropriate clips for the Top, Side, and Bottom straps. They are stamped, but it's a bit hard for these old eyes to read. I also used a bit of polish to mark the locations where the various bar got set, so that I could collapse it all the way down for when I wasn't using it. (that was before I noticed the little stickers they put in the package to accomplish the same thing.)
One observation, the straps are VERY long, to fit almost any type of vehicle. I used a couple of short strips of velcro to loop and wrap them so they don't flail around in the wind. I'm not going to cut them, since I may need that length some time in the future with a different vehicle.
Who isn't teaching today, just setting up a classroom. It's like a vacation.
