resulting in damage to the CBC and injury to personnel.
Once the Cargo Bed Cover is in its fully extended position, entry to the CBC can be gained through the
Personnel Door (1).
To open the personnel door (1), rotate the door handle (2) up to a vertical position (3). In this position, the
door latch rods (4) on the inside of the door release from their contact points at the top (5) and bottom (6)

When the door handle (2) is in the horizontal position it may be padlocked (10) from the outside. If the
personnel door (1) is for any reason padlocked with personnel inside, they may exit the CBC by using the

overrride feature which permits the handle to be rotated from the inside of the CBC, even if the outside
door handle is padlocked.

a 45 degree angle from horizontal. To open the door, the inside handle (11) is rotated clockwise and
points down at approximately a 45 degree angle.
