Fitting Light Tackle
Light tackle is used to support the link as a slack chain at all link joints during building and booming, then to lower the
link to its final position. It has two hooks. The hook closest to the end of the rope is the low position hook which is used when
the link is in its final (low) position. The other hook is the high position hook which is used to hold the link in its high position
during building and booming.
Remove retainer clip from panel pin in bottom panel and fit plate of light tackle over end of pin. Put retainer clip
back in end of panel pin.
Place toggle bar in center hole of link, push down and turn through 90° (1/4 turn) to lock toggle bar in link. Ensure
there are no snags or knots in the rope running around the pulley.
