- Install the ratchet park brake under the rear of the coupling using 2 x 1/2″ bolts.
- This causes the coupling to be tilted towards the front of the coupling.
- 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.
- Keep hands and fingers clear of ratchet when operating the hand brake.
- Regularly inspect cables to ensure tension when the handbrake is in operation
- Ensure there is no slack in the hand brake cable. Wear and tear will cause the cable to stretch
- Use wheel chocks an additional safety mechanism
- Check all bolts and roll pins are correctly tightened and located
- Trailer safety chains should not be released until trailer hand brake is secured
