Vertically stand two rows of nine handbrakes per row on their sides in a crate. The rows face in opposite directions with the gear ends pointing outward. The first layer consists of a total of 18 handbrakes. The second layer of handbrakes is placed face up, in three pairs, at right angles to one another with the seventh handbrake remaining unpaired. They are oriented in such a manner that the geared portion faces outward. The second layer consists of 7 handbrakes for a total of twenty-five per package. Chains must be taut and secured to the lever of each handbrake by either looping the trailing link over it or by attaching it with a twist tie. Fasteners must be placed in a bag and be attached to each handbrake. If a crate lid is used, it may be placed over the handbrakes and should be secured to the package with two .5″ non-metallic bands.
