Horizontal Stabilizer Cradle Assy


This component is a shoring support cradle that supports the bottom horizontal stabilizer surface in a chordwise direction, extending from the front edge of the forward beam cap to the rear edge of the aft beam cap. The cradle is constructed of wood with a steel socket that interfaces with the tripod jack. Felt is added to the contour edge to prevent any surface damage to the aircraft.


These cradles are used to support the horizontal stabilizer during inspection and maintenance.
