When attaching the power cable assembly to the AR2, always verify
proper engagement of ball end of power cable with piston rod of

other tools that will over tighten power-housing retainer.
It is recommended that the AR2 NOT be transported to and from the

this procedure may cause damage to equipment.

Prior to installing the AR2 in the ripcord release pocket, remove
