Title: Slide 34
Type: Photo Slide
A contractor attempted to install these cross braces AFTER the scaffold was erected. The cross braces did not fit, and so the contractor used Mason's String to secure them. The braces did not fit because the scaffold legs bent/bowed under pressure, and without the cross braces in place, they went out of plumb!
