I'm Dave -- welcome to fired yankees' training minutes. Today we're gonna talk about tension but -- stabilization. -- attention but -- -- -- is nothing more it's just simply putting a right triangle against the vehicle itself. There was a lot of different -- systems out there for vehicles overturned or its upside down -- -- on different object. We're gonna show you simple basis this simple basic principle behind. Tension buttress curbing. So. Basically we're gonna do we're gonna come in on a vehicle on its side. We're gonna first put in a -- of curbing underneath the vehicle all the way around it to fill in all -- Now we're gonna work from the dirty side. Which is the undercarriage side and then to the clean side which is the sheet metal side. We're gonna put -- struts in on a dirty side. And two -- -- on the clean side thus capturing the vehicle. And increasing its basic ground contact. Now -- -- gonna come in they're gonna go through the entire evolution step by step. So let's take a look at what they're gonna do. -- rescue crews coming and they're gonna put it -- kriegel -- around the the vehicle both the dirty side. The -- side and but now they're putting. He struck some place. Want to try and stay away from any suspension components and -- between. The wheels. Side of the wheels. On the thirty -- on the senate side of it. Once the strike has been placed under I think they ratchet strap and -- left strapped from the base of the struck. To the vehicle itself. Thus making a complete right triangle against the vehicle. -- and it's please contact. Any extra strap from the left strapped -- gonna wrap around the base of the strike. -- and -- it up close to the vehicle itself so it's they enjoy this moment. Now once the dirty -- secure we're gonna -- -- want on the clean side. The reason why we work on the dirty side -- side -- -- many times we're gonna have to make an opening our purchase went on the side. -- that -- -- haven't -- into the battle or watching them. If we do that we're putting pressure against. The other side of the vehicle but since we've already captured the other side of the vehicle vehicle still -- solved. How many times would only be able to get for instructs them in this vehicle were able to get for it. Think about the vehicle on -- side. What part of the vehicle is gonna take apart your only gonna to remove the roof expectation -- -- -- the crew is making a purchase point. To hook distract. In the front. And the -- that may have purchased point to -- the end of the struck. And again just like dirty side. Once the structures in place when Iran Iraq -- from the base of the strike to the vehicle itself to complete the right triangle. -- widen the -- contract. The vehicle passes over. Once we've completed both sides. We'll make sure that or ratchets -- the -- and the more complete vehicles solid. Okay our crew finished -- -- -- and -- stabilization. Evolution. They went through it step by step simple basic process was very quick -- -- the vehicle in place very very positive. Again. We want to show and demonstrate in this evolution the simple principle behind -- but the stabilization. Nothing more than a right triangle against the vehicle -- other systems out there that can be complex that work well however. They all work behind the simple principle. I'd like to thank our sponsor Camacho. And I'd like to thank you for watching training Linux be safe out there.
