Cutting Ladder Bracket from Container Frame with Torch
Removing bolts with a torch is a fire hazard.
(5) If present on container, remove two (2) or four (4) bolts protruding from wall of container under
refrigeration unit, (Figure 3) with a reciprocating saw or other cutting device to within 1/4" of the
container surface. Do not remove with a torch as this presents a fire hazard. To reduce
possibility of damage to the container wall, use the existing washers as a spacer/wear plate
between the wall and the saw blade. This will deter the saw blade from coming in contact with
the wall panel surface during the sawing action. Leave cut-off bolts in container, and cover and
seal with sealant listed in Table 4. After repair is complete, prime and paint with Items listed in
Table 4 in accordance with MIL-C-53039.
