PROJECTILE RACK OPERATION (continued)
Loading and Stowing Projectiles
Unlock rack section to be loaded by releasing both handles (1) from locking clips (3).
If necessary, install extension handle over projectile rack handle to obtain additional leverage.
Secure handles in unlocked position by pushing them upward and locking them with locking clips (2) on rack section
above. Handles of top rack section can be retained by locking clips on stowage boxes.
Use conveyor (p. 2-149) to move each projectile to rack section tube.
To avoid injury to back, hands, and feet, use caution and proper lifting techniques when manually handling
Do not force projectiles into tubes. If projectile will not slide Into tube, check to make sure handles are
retained upward. Damage to locking pad could result if projectile is forced into tube with locking handles
Load each projectile into an unlocked rack section tube.
As each rack section is filled, lock projectiles in it by pushing rack handles out and down. Position both rack handles
into locking clips.
After all projectiles have been loaded and locked into place, pull on each projectile. If any projectile can be pulled out,
remove it, relocate it in another tube, or unload it. Lock rack section and notify Unit maintenance.
