When shipping or transporting truss, take precautions to properly package and secure the truss and other items around the truss, which will prevent rubbing and/or bouncing that could cause serious damage.
When attaching 2 trusses together always ensure that the connections are secure prior to lifting or loading the truss.
Steel bolts should be tightened with a socket wrench as a minimum, but not so tight that the steel washers damage the aluminum plates on the truss.
All fork end clevis pins should be secured with R-clips prior to use. Once the trusses are connected together the span acts as a single truss.
It is important to note that when connecting multiple pieces of truss together, the diagonal pattern in the side of the trusses must form a continuous pattern throughout the span.
