Do not handle ropes/lines by placing hands in bight of the line where it feeds into
cleats, etc. Place the hands on top or on the outside so that in an emergency the lines
can be released quickly to preclude being pulled into the equipment. Failure to follow
these precautions could result in serious injury or death.
Maneuver sections together using warping tugs, ropes/lines, flush turn tubes and lift lugs so that the tapered
surfaces of male and female shear connectors mate together in general alignment.
Rotate chute bolt handles (1) and pull the chute bolts (1) to the unlocked position.
Remove guillotines (2).
Push each flexor connector from the left end rake into the corresponding pocket of the right end rake until the
guillotines (2) are aligned with the flexor connector slots.
Use a crowbar (3) to position flexor connector.
