2. Prior to installing the AR2 in the ripcord release pocket, remove the storage cable and piston rod cap,
if present. Save these components for future use.
When attaching the power cable assembly to the AR2, always verify
proper engagement of ball end of power cable with piston rod of
AR2 by looking through transparent plastic cable seal retainer.
Cable seal retainer and power cable seal must be present to ensure
correct seating of power cable ball. If ball is not engaged with piston
rod or if cable seal retainer is missing, actuation of AR2 will fail to
pull ripcord pins, which may result in death of parachutist.
Finger tighten the power-housing retainer. Do not use pliers or
other tools that will over tighten power-housing retainer.
3. Verify that the ball of the power cable is correctly engaged with the piston rod.
