Installing aftermarket (J Thomas) snow deflector on Boss V

This may be a silly question, but what are the rubber blocks (10 per deflector) for? I received three in the mail the other day. I guess I thought the deflector piece of rubber just mounted right to the frame. Are these essentially large washers? I'm assuming you install them by sandwiching the deflector between the blocks and the top of the mulboard? Do you use all 10? Which means you've got 30 holes to drill?

How about the center section of rubber?

Thanks for any help... installing them today.

I think the blocks install perpindicular to the deflector and moldboard and act as stiffeners. By installing on top of the deflector the blocks keep is from lifting as the snow or air rolls of the moldboard.

I have never used or installed on but this is how is appears to work.

I think you're right. I did a post before I examined the contents of my box more closely. The little blocks caused me to scratch my head when I first looked at them. Thanks for confirming for me.

I had a cheap deflector on my old Boss V and it would flip around in the wind hard enough to shake the truck. I made blocks for it as well. On the new 9' V I bought the Boss deflector.
