Fit the D-shaped recess of the Waterway Bracket onto the matching post at this location of the Fly Section (Left):
Secure the Waterway Bracket into place from the inside with one (1) Type C screw:
This Fly Section represents the uppermost part of the aerial boom and will soon be attached to the Ladder Platform (Bucket).
