Connect the single leg sling to the crane hook and the other end to the launch beam lifter.
Ensure that the safety clip on the crane hook is correctly positioned so that the sling
cannot become disconnected from the crane. Also, ensure that the safety clip on the
hook at the end of the single leg sling is similarly correctly positioned so that the launch
beam lifter will not become accidentally disconnected.
Connect the launch beam lifter to the launch beam to be lifted by rotating the safety catch
upwards and then rotating the hook at the end of the launch beam lifter.
Hook the fixed end of launch beam lifter into the lifting point in the center of the beam so
that it is positioned between the locating lug.
Lower the launch beam lifter so that the rotatable hook (which is raised up) will locate in
the other locating lug, lower the hook on the launch beam lifter. Ensure that it is located
between the lugs.
Rotate the safety catch so that it locks the rotatable hook in the down position.
Connect tag lines to the handles either end of the beam to assist in controlling the launch
beam during lifting and connection to the launch beam.
