Help with the Scoshe dash kit!

Ok, so while re-painting my dash, I acidentilly broke my last head unit install kit, so i had to buy a new one. I purchased the Scoshe FM1375B. Problem is, I cant figure out how to install it. It says that the HU is supposed to go inbefore the kit is (the kit simply snaps on at the end). However, what am I supposed to mount the cage/HU to? does it just stay loose in there? Thanks!

there is little tabs on that 'cage' you bend them out so that it pressure fits into the plastic hole.

No, on the radio cage there are several tabs that you need to bend outward in order for the radio to be secured in the install kit. The way I did mine was as follows:

1 - Install the radio cage on the install kit.
2 - bend tabs outward to secure cage to kit.
3 - install kit with cage attached to the hole in the car
4 - plug wires to radio
5 - insert radio into cage, it should lock in the cage.

hope this helps.

Thanks, but this doesnt apply to this kit. It requires that the kit be snapped on last. So.......I dont know

I'm on the same problem, Did you solve it?
I bought the same kit but... is it called kit?
God this thing come with the plastic face and a back support which doesn't come with a [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]g screw, this kit just clip on the mounting dash and the head unit gets too loose, in other words I cannot get the HU stay tight enough.

The cage... mother Jesus of Christ! The HU cage seems to work like a decoration thing, you can bend the tabs for nothing more than "bend the tabs". hahahaha.

[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]
Please include any pics if you all have work with this kit.

Thnx

The kit I had was the same way before I made my opening a double din but what I did was take the radio can (metal sleeve that radio slides into with all the tabs) and placed it into the large opening in the dash. I held it all the way at the top of the large opening while I pressed the left, right, and top tabs of the can outwards to keep the can from being pulled straight out of the dash. The only tabs I pressed through were the ones at a angle so that when you press the tabs through the narrow edge of the tab will catch the dash, not the face of the tab(NOT the tabs that you're going to bend at a 90 degree angle and if you pull straight forward on the kit they'll bend back into place). Keep in mind the can will not stay there at this point. What you do then is to take your radio, slide it into the can with all of the wiring connected, shove the thing up to the very top of the opening again and snap that kit in.

Thanks LawrenceBMX, I've done it this morning. As soon as I can I'll put the photo finished or the job.
I Dremel the cage (radio can) a bit cutting sides of it, that was the only way I found to make it fit in the kit, I have also used a bit of Super Glue so the cage can't move it from the kit and also bend the down tabs.
It looks good, but I'm concern about thief security, I will try to work more on it and the other tabs not bended.
