Preparation Prior to Rail Shipment.
Rail load locking pins must be installed to lock flatrack to trailer for rail transport. Failure
to use locking pins to lock flatrack to trailer could cause severe injury or death to personnel.
Right and left rail-load locking pins are installed the same way.
Refer to TM 9-2320-364-10 and insure that the flatrack rollers are against the stops at rear of
trailer. This will help to align the holes in the trailer and flatrack.
Remove two locknuts (1) and reinforcement plate (2) from studs (3). Discard locknuts.
