To install the Atlas Kickstand, you need to remove the bottom of the front Bosch battery holder to access the existing center-mounted kickstand on the GSD.

Step 1: Remove the battery from the battery holder and remove the screws holding the two halves of the case with a T15 Torx wrench.

Step 2: Gently pry open the case with a flat-head screwdriver.

Step 3: Remove the case to expose the metal bracket.

Step 4: Separate the plug from the metal bracket.

Step 5: Remove the metal bracket with a T25 Torx wrench.

Step 6: Gently move the metal bracket to the side to expose the kickstand mounting bolt. Detach the stock kickstand with an 8 mm Allen wrench.

After installing the Atlas kickstand or servicing the GSD kickstand, reassemble the battery holder by following the above steps in reverse order.
