HLU-256/E MANUAL HOISTING BAR
The HLU-256/E manual hoisting bar (fig. 9-14)
consists of a round steel bar with a removable bomb nose
plug connector and tail stop plates on one end. A
quick-release pin secures the nose plug connector to the
bar. When a tee configuration is desired, the nose plug
can be relocated to a position at the bars midpoint. The
opposite end of the bar can be used as a lift point in the
bombs tail end. A tail stop is situated 18 inches from
this end of the bar.
The HLU-256/E manual hoisting bar is used to
manually lift Mk 80 series general-purpose bombs that
weigh up to 1,000 pounds during aircraft
loading/unloading operations. It is also used for
weapons assembly purposes.
