The boom contains a foam batten with wire cable support on top and chain on the bottom section, with metal plates on each bridle end. All attachments should be made to the bottom ring on the bridle ends and not to any other part of the boom.
Important! Making attachments to the chain or other parts of the boom will result in tearing and failure of the boom.
