                  • Forks and Scales are HEAVY!
                  • Think ahead.  -  Get help.  -  Pay Attention!
                  • Do not put hands, feet or other body parts under the forks or scales.

This Installation Guide provides only general suggestions.
You are responsible for safe work practices and sound judgment
for lifting and maneuvering heavy objects.

Be careful and thoughtful before proceeding.

Mechanical Installation of SEKO Scales should take less than ten minutes total time.
Installation of the Class II SEKO Scales with up to 48 inch forks
can usually be accomplished by one experienced worker.
The videos which accompany this guide were filmed by the worker doing the installation.
The video installation was the first installation ever attempted by the worker.
An experienced worker will note the errors experienced in this learning process.
(Feel free to be amused at the in-expert moves.)
This "first-time installation by an inexperienced worker" took less than ten minutes, total.
