Two soldiers should be placed at each arch to raise frame. Lift tent from correct squatting
position, using your legs to avoid back injury.
Tent frame must be raised uniformly to avoid twisting or turning. Damage to frame can
result if lifted unevenly.
4. Step in next to the eave gusset (4).
Frame assembly hinges can pinch, crush, or amputate hands and fingers. Keep hands
and fingers away from frame assembly ridges and eaves. An expedient way to keep
clear of potential danger areas is to keep your hands "outside the triangle" at all times.
5. Place one hand on the side arch assembly (6) and one hand on the eave purlin (7) outside the
diagonal brace (8).
6. Get in a stable squatting position and lift frame straight up to shoulder height, dragging side arch
assembly (6) inward.
7. Place weight of the frame on side arch assembly foot (9).
