Overview of Covert Installation Steps

There are FIVE steps to complete on the covert installation:

  1. Remove the OBD Receptacle from its bracket.
  2. Tape the two connections with electrical tape.
  3. Connect the Eagle One to the OBD receptacle
  4. Secure Eagle One Device within the Vehicle driver side front panel.
  5. Secure connected wiring & OBD Receptacle away from driver’s legs.

Because vehicles have different cab structures & OBD receptacle housing, mounting the Eagle One device and connecting will differ from vehicle to vehicle.

Make sure to secure away from driver’s legs and see that the device cannot shift/move when vehicle is in motion.

The OBD port will be below and slightly left of the steering column.

OBD Mounting Brackets

Remove the OBD receptacle using the appropriate tool (wrench, socket or hex wrench).

OBD Device Free of Bracket

After unscrewing, this is what you see.

The OBD receptacle should now hang loose from its bracket.

Open the front panel/Drivers Side

Carefully pull back on panel under steering column to disengage the pins on panel from vehicle.

Eagle 1 Connection Cord

Carefully, slide the Eagle 1 Device connection cable into the space between front panel and vehicle.

Electrical or “Do Not Tamper” Tape

Place electrical or “Do Not Tamper” tape on the connection of the Eagle1 Device, ensuring the tape covers both the device & the connector.

Nesting Eagle 1 into F-150/F-250 (Option 1)

If the volt regulator wiring allows, the Eagle 1 will fit nicely just above the Break Release handle.

Nesting Eagle 1 into F-150/F-250 (Option 2)

If the volt regulator wiring does not allow placement as in Option 1, the Eagle 1 will fit vertically set behind metal brace as shown.

Nesting Eagle 1 into Chevy 1500

Chevrolet Silverado 1500s have a metal bar that sits just above the panel that can serve as the base for the Eagle 1 device. Zip tie the device as shown (point the connection toward the engine).

Close Front Panel

Close the Front Panels by bending back the panel to reach the latch and push in.
Ensure that the Eagle 1 Device does not interfere with the steering column or any other mechanisms. If it does, reopen panel and shift device until it does not interfere.

Strapping on OBD receptacle

Use zip ties to secure OBD receptacle away from driver’s legs to avoid ‘bumping it’ issues. You can secure to available brackets, or wiring behind drivers side panel.

Example Bracket used to secure OBD receptacle in Ford F-250 shown.

Secure excess wire from device

Secure any excess wire under panel to bracket or other electrical wires with a zip tie. Here's how it will look when done correctly.

Nested Eagle 1

Correctly placed, the Eagle 1 Device and cord should be virtually ‘invisible’ & inconspicuous to driver and allow for full range of motion from driving column.

Completing the job

Replace and tighten any bolts or empty receptacle you removed earlier to the OBD receptacle mounting bracket.

Eagle 1 Device install in the vehicle is now complete.

Installing the Eagle 1 on a trailer (2)

Installing the Eagle 1 on a trailer (1)

To install the Eagle 1 onto most light equipment, such as a trailer, you’ll have to connect the device to the trailer’s battery.

First, secure the device to the trailer using self-tapping screws through the 4 mounting holes, attaching the device on the outside of the battery well and stringing the cable through the hole in the metal dividing plate.

After stringing the cable through the metal plate take care that it is not pinched by the closing of the cover.

Installing the Eagle 1 on a trailer (3)

Connect the Eagle 1 to the battery terminals (outside is best to complete the cycle for the 12 volts).

Verify that the lights on device are green and receiving power, then tighten. Double check that the cables will not interfere with the closing of the cover.
