INSTALLING THE FORK POCKET ADAPTER PLUG
Ensure all container connectors are properly seated and locked. Additionally, ensure all
internal material is secured through the use of drawer locking mechanisms, load
constraint bars, cargo strap/netting, pallet lock rods, module locking devices (WP 0006
00 and 0007 00). Failure to comply could cause serious injury, death or property
To prevent serious personal injury, the HEMTT truck should be turned off, have the
brakes set, and wheels chocked prior to performing this task.
The installation of the fork pocket adapter plug is accomplished after the ASLMS has been loaded onto
the M1076 PLS trailer. With ASLMS securely positioned on the M1076 PLS trailer, fork pocket adapter
plugs can be inserted into forward fork pocket openings of the FPU-8 container. This fork pocket adapter
plug is installed when it is to be loaded onto an M1076 PLS trailer and is to be transported by rail.
Fork Pocket Adapter plugs are hand oriented. With the yoke-attaching bracket facing
outward, the 1-inch pinning hole will always be closest to the front of the container.
