(16) Using a 9/16-inch socket or wrench, fully tighten the roller pad bolts (2) and (3) initially
installed in step (9) above. This completes the assembly of the major components of the
type V airdrop platform.
The platform weighs approximately 100-pounds per foot of length.
To avoid injury to personnel or damage to surrounding equipment,
use extreme caution in lifting and handling. Never walk near or
crawl beneath raised platform. If control of platform is lost,
immediately alert other personnel. Failure to do so may cause
serious injury to personnel.
In turning the platform over, be careful not to damage the side rails.
Short pieces of lumber (e.g., two-by-fours or plywood) should be
used to prevent the rail edges from contacting a concrete floor or
other hard surface while the platform is being turned over.
