Look up to the top of the pedal assembly and you'll see a spring coming out of it. Now lift the pedal all the way up off the floor and put zip ties around any cable that protrudes from the spring.

Just a note though. It DOES NOT add HP, and does not make the truck go faster. It only shortens the slack on the cable allowing for quicker response for acceleration. Those that think it makes their truck go faster also have the tornado installed, along with running Zmax, and have NOS decals.
