On the chest pack, move the joystick rearwards to lower the home bank carriage
beam. Continue lowering until the cable running under the launch beam rests on the
bridge and the beam is lowered sufficiently to attach the slings to the ramp module.
Do not allow the carriage beam to rest on the bridge, as this will cause the lower winch
rope to become too slack, and may cause it to become double wrapped (nested) around
the winch drum.
Remove the R clips from the sling retractable pins and retract the pins.
Route the slings of the far bank carriage through the bridge lifting points on the home
bank ramp module and reconnect the sling to the carriage. Make sure the retractable
pin is fully located and secured with the R clip.

On the chest pack, slowly move the joystick forward to partially raise the home bank
carriage beam, and tension slings so that they can be balanced/squared off.
It is extremely important that the two carriage parts are in line vertically and horizontally.
Failure to ensure correct alignment will result in the bottom half of the carriage becoming
jammed in the top half of the carriage when it is raised.
Continue to raise the bridge, ensuring that as soon as the bridge rolls rearwards the
bridge end stops are released to allow upward travel of the bridge.
If the carriage beam does not correctly align, lower the bridge ensuring that the Bridge
Stops are lowered to restrain the bridge. Re-align the lift beam and slings.
Once the carriage beam is fully raised, insert the shootbolts in the home bank
