• Loop end of cable (Diagram B)
• Thread cable through mid rail and top rail (Diagram A, C, and D) by hand, pull all loose cable back to winch
• Hook loop and winch in slack cable
• Ensure lock mechanism is set on winch


10. Inspection

• Complete visual inspection upon erection
• Double check “T” bolt on Adjustable Clamp until in a “snug tight” to parapet at predetermined locations
