Inside and outside Extraction Force Transfer Actuator (EFTA) brackets. The inside and
outside EFTA brackets (1) and (2), are used to attach the EFTA to the left side rail. Two
holes are provided in the side rail for attaching the brackets. Using a 9/16-inch wrench,
install; two 3/8-inch x 9/16-inch hex head bolts (3) with two 3/8-inch flat washers (4) and two
3/8-inch hex lock nuts (5) with two 3/8-inch flat washers. As an illustrated aid, there is an
arrow on the outside brackets that will point forward when the bracket has been properly
3. Assemble the Dual Row Airdrop Platform as follows:
a. Position all components as near as practical to the location where the platform is to be
b. Start the screws two or three turns by hand.
Because the Dual Row platform is gravity extracted, platform
bowing cannot exceed a ¼-inch tolerance. Therefore, a flat, clean,
dedicated assembly area is critical to the proper assembly of the
Dual Row platform. In addition, an assembly structure must be built
to allow for the placement of the outrigger assemblies from the
underside of the assembly structure. Failure to do so could cause
improper assembly causing the load to jam during extraction.
Do not hammer screws or bolts through holes of roller pads or side
rails due to probable damage to internal fixed components (ex., nut
bars and encapsulated nuts).
