The clamp has a hole for the screw. Align this hole with the matching threaded one in the vacuum bed and the position is correct.

Remove cutter holder first.

The print carriage locks in its normal parking position. Then set the clamp in place.

Wait, I have a better one. A customer wanted to save my travel fee for service and brought the printer in in his Volvo station wagon. The ink installed and the printer laying on its back side, ink leaked everywhere in the system, including mainboard and the rest of the electronics. Trashed 100%.
