To gain access to the seals on the bottom door edge, it may be necessary to raise the
container above floor level. Use lifting devices rated for a minimum of 10,000
pounds (4536 Kg). Using less than rated equipment could expose personnel to
serious injury or death.
Removal of the seals is the same for both left- and right-hand doors.
Using a 3/16" drill bit drill out rivets (figure 1, 1). There are seven rivets on each top and bottom edge and 14 rivets on
each side edge. The left-hand door does not have rivets on the edge that mates with the right-hand door.
