ANCHOR ASSEMBLY. Anchors the chain of links to two of the bottom panel pins at each end of the bridge.
POSTTENSIONING ASSEMBLY. Used to remove slack from the complete reinforcement system. When the
reinforcing post is correctly positioned, nearly vertical, the entire system is tensioned and the bridge reinforced. A
cable puller is used to position the tensioning post.
REINFORCING LINK, LONG AND SHORT. Used to reinforce double story bridges. If a bridge has an odd
number of bays, one short reinforcing link is used under the same bay on each chain. Links are connected with
launching nose pins and have a guide system built into them.
