Step by Step Ready Rig VEGA Instructions

Welcome to the Ready Rig VEGA installation tutorial. Below, we will walk you through all of the necessary steps to get your Ready Rig and VEGA connected and ready to go. If you come across any issues, drop us a line and we’ll get you an answer as soon as possible.

Thank you from all of us at Ready Rig.

We’re going to start off by opening up the box. The VEGA comes with all the tools you need to do the installation:

  • 7/16 wrench
  • Two (2) packets of hardware
  • First, take your Ready Rig GS Vest and place it on a table.
  • Make sure you have all the provided tools and hardware packets nearby.

  • Take a screw provided in one of the packs and thread it in lightly, but don’t tighten it down all the way.
  • Move to the second screw, make sure the alignment’s good.
  • Now tighten firmly.
  • We’re going to do the same thing to the other side and tighten firmly on all screws.
  • TROUBLESHOOTING: If the holes are not aligning, separate the VEGA from the plate, insert the screws, and align the screws to the threads on the VEGA. If it starts to cross-thread, realign, and make sure that the screw is aligned perfectly. Next, move over to the Allen key and tighten down. This is going to make sure that you don’t cross-thread any of the screws.
