During all transporter operations, the CBT operator will

If bridge halves are on pallet, do not attempt to unload
pallet to ground without the fastening rods installed.
Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
Perform step 2 if bridge is on pallet and fastening rods
are not installed.
2. Install two fastening rods on each side of bridge (4) or, if fastening rods are
installed, ensure they are properly tightened. Refer to WP 0008 00.
