(b) Extend four load binders (18) to show approximately 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) of thread on both ends.
Remove two shackles (19) from platform stowage compartment and position near rear payload tiedown
When laying out load binders, ensure parallel load binder is on outboard side of
shackle and angled load binder is on inboard side of shackle to prevent load
binders from interfering with each other.
(c) Using two shackles (19), secure two load binders (18), small end of pear link toward load binder, to each
rear payload tiedown ring. For each pair of load binders (18), place one load binder (18) parallel to edge
of platform pointed toward front and other load binder angled toward center of platform. Position handles
(d) Lay out streetside parallel tiedown chain(s) (20) as follows:
1. If using 3/4-inch link chains, hook two 11-foot chains (20) together.
2. If using 1/2-inch link chains, select one 19-foot chain (20).
3. Route chain(s) (20) forward from streetside parallel load binder (18), parallel with edge of platform,
through large shackle (21) (from platform stowage compartment) in streetside center tiedown ring.
4. Pass chain(s) (20) back toward rear of platform. If using 3/4-inch chains, be sure that junction of the
two 3/4-inch chains is aft of large shackle (21). Do not connect chain(s) to load binder (18).
