Attaching the Tilt Straps
When all cabinets have been linked and the top chains attached, the tilt straps can now be
First attach the longer strap to the flybar by sliding the flat buckle into the tilt strap
attachment point. Slide the flat buckle on the shorter strap into the tilt strap point on the
bottom of the cabinet, insert the free end of the strap through the centre of the ratchet
spindle, and pull to apply some tension before ratcheting the column.
The tilt strap is designed to ratchet in both directions, an improvement over previous
versions which did not allow incremental tilt reduction. However, at all times please note that
if the tension on the 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

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.
