adaptable to handling the boxed or crated bath unit by either slings or a forklift truck. Be careful when placing slings on
the crate to make certain that the bath unit will balance evenly and properly and will be kept level when lifting it to the site
to be uncrated. Uncrate the bath unit as follows:
a. Remove the lag screws securing the top to the sides of the packing crate, and remove the top from the crate.
b. Remove the lag screws securing the sides to the bottom of the crate, and remove the sides from the bottom as
c. Remove the nuts securing the baseboard to the bottom of the packing crate.
