First opened lid up and took ring cover off tub. Then unscrew 4 back screws and lifted top up. I replaced all 4 straps, so this process is repeated 4 times: with rubber gloved hand, lift metal support stick up, remove white plastic safety lock, insert strap and replace safety plastic lock and metal support stick to original position. Then, after removing old strap from tup side, replace the new end. After all 4 all done, push back down ring in position over tub, and screw everything back. The hardest part was holding the metal stick up with the gloved hand (as it was oily and slippery), and using one hand to do the rest, Otherwise, a fast and easy job.
