1st: while holding the middle of the unit and sitting down spread the unsprung fabric across the table so the end of the fabric is away from you.
b.) holding the middle roll it up about 4 or 5 full turns
c.) then while still holding the middle turn the left side towards you as its being pushed towards the middle
d.) repeat for the right side spring cap unit
e.) while still holding the middle spin it either almost or all the way up at this point.
f.) repeat step b. and c. then it should be fully sprung tight.
*side note* IF that doesn't work out then do the idea backwards and the unit will actually hold itself coiled
2nd: similar idea just more complicated
having the cover partially installed with one cap pushed into its normal space in the wall
b.) while pushing towards the cars body on the backdeck cover unit AND holding onto the other endcap you start to spool up the covers spring system.
c.)once the cover was installd you should notice a marked resistence higher when unscrolling the back deck of the wagon
then you have the "Factory" level of more of friction here in denton . The health codes are not pretty but, welll yeah.

Okay, so Monk's #2 trick is one I tried last night multiple times and multiple times again today. I've tried his #1 several times with same results. Which is, the cover spring will only roll it out, not in.
What do you mean to unwind it and work the other way? It is already unwound and my cover seems to only roll one way. There is a face up side of nice brown vinyl and a face down side of the backside of the vinyl. If I try to roll it backwards, with the backside of the vinyl showing, not only does it not roll up easily, it gets bunch up, plus the spring does the same thing, which is to eject the cover, instead of rolling it up.
I've spent nearly an hour trying to figure this thing out! Maybe I'm missing something or I broke mine.

How/where did you punch to get the ends off? I'm hitting pretty hard but I don't want to break the thing. I'm punching in the end where it looks like a punch would go. There's a metal tube with a pin going across it in the end hole, that's what I'm punching on...no luck yet. Thanks!
