You loop the LC-2 Upper connector strap into one of the slots on the vertical horn of the frame on each side;

Pull the tail end to secure the frame into the frame pocket

And insert the tail end into the strap metal loop on the rucksack

Now it is going around the shoulder pad’s webbing, as is standard

Finish the upper setup with the friction buckle as shown. This method ensures the pack frame does not slip out of the frame pocket, and stabilizes the pack to the shoulder straps as well, by pulling up the frame towards the top, and with the metal loops, pulling the pack towards the user’s neck

This is how mine looks when complete. You can opt to pull the strap over the neck padding if desired, however I believe doing it this way may irritate your neck due to the webbing.

The lower frame to pack connections; loop the strap through one of the horizontal slots on each side, and fasten as standard. The lower shoulder strap is looped through the vertical slot on each side of the frame.
