Pictures of cable attachments for patio ramp?

I got the cable set for the patio for our ramp on our Vengeance 23FB13. It includes the hardware and the cables, but no instructions. Does anyone have pictures of the attachments on the trailer, especially the upper ones on the trailer itself? The attachments are on the ramp, but the kit includes the hardware attachments for the trailer but I can not find where they should be attached. Any help would be appreciated.

Wish I had something with a closer zoom for you, but you can see here on mine that they are connected to clasps and then to the frame.

Thanks! That is exactly what I needed. I was able to enlarge the picture to see the attachment points. The kit they sent me had extra attachment points that go on the ramp, but my ramp had those, so I was confused and thought they were to be mounted on the trailer frame. If they included a simple picture I would have figured it out no problem. Thanks again. Leaving tomorrow and now we can use the patio!

I assume that by now you've had a chance to use the patio setup. If you noticed a lot of bouncing (you should have) then that's completely normal. With the deck being supported only by the cable system there is natural stretching of the cables. Not much, but continued movement on the deck creates a mild spring effect in the cables.

A good solution is adding adjustable stands. Snug the stands up to the point that you feel the cables just barely loosen. I used a pair of slide supports and all the bounce disappeared.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
