  1. Install the ratchet park brake under the rear of the coupling using 2 x 1/2" bolts.
  2. This causes the coupling to be tilted towards the front of the coupling.
  3. Then install the spacer under the front of the coupling to bring the coupling to a level plane.

Alternatively, locate the parking brake on a cross arm behind the coupling. However, we do recommend the best place to install braking equipment is ion the one area and that is under the coupling.
