I don't do video...............self-explanatory if you simply look at the alt. The threads for attaching bolts to go through are in steel inserts that are pressed into the aluminum bosses, in tight but move sideways with enough force. Tightening the bolt pulls them up tight to pinch the bracket hard, when taking alt off you must push them back out so the bosses loosen up to let alt simply fall out. I use visegrips to press them sideways. Or thread bolt partially into hole and then tap on bolt head itself.
