Use bay connecting tool and crow bar to assist in engaging connectors.
Position bay connecting tool (17) on roadway (18).
Figure 2-14 Bay Free Launch (Sheet 4 of 5).
(b) Install crow bar (19) and move crow bar back and forth until connectors (20) are engaged.
If roadway-to-bow ponton latches are not engaged, the bow ponton will fold up when vehicle crosses the
bridge. This may cause serious injury or death to any personnel standing on the bay.
The backs of the roadway-to-bow ponton latches are painted yellow to allow a quick, visual check to en-
sure latches are engaged.
(c) Engage four roadway-to-bow Ponton bridge batches.
(d) Ensure lower lockpin drive screw (22) moves freely and pin (23) is fully retracted.
