    Here a few I snapped with cell phone, quality isn't the greatest, but you should be able to get locations. MUD

    Used conveyor belt we picked up from a local concrete plant, got a roll of about 100' for free, 17" wide

    In all the years of installing the snow deflectors, we have found that the middle part is the toughest. we have found that only using one bolt that goes into the the hinge pin and using to on the outer corners and leaving them loose so that they are able to pivot. If you tighten them, it tears the rubber when you wing it out. Here are some pictures of how we do it.

    mine is like the above photo, and not connected in the back, just 2 bolts in front. came like this and havent used it yet though, seems to stay in place just fine when I cycle the plow though

    sorry, i tried to upload 2 photos, but couldnt do it. if you leave the two up front loose, your more likely not going to tear it out. its got to be able to pivot on them. plus, give it some flexibility, dont pull over the top too tight.

    This is what it should look like in the scoop position. It should flex out with no problems.
