When initially ratcheting a column of speakers it is good to bear in mind the expected angle
of inclination so as to avoid ending up with too much of the strap left on the ratchet. This is
important because the ratchet can only take three complete turns before it releases itself.
WARNING: If a tilt strap is released suddenly, the column of enclosures may
tend to swing violently forwards and care must be taken to avoid danger to
persons in the vicinity. It is essential to check that nobody is standing
immediately in front of the column, and to give a suitable warning, before the strap is
released. Ideally, two persons should support the column from the side whilst the strap is
released, or alternatively the bottom row may be returned to the ground before release. In
any event it is essential that all personnel in the vicinity are aware that the system is about to
move and that they must keep clear.
