PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Figure 1 illustrates the 3M™ DBI-SALA Flexiguard™ Modular Jib System M100 Adjustable Jib Boom. The M100 Jib System is
used to provide an adjustable Fall Arrest anchor point for a worker. These instructions cover use of the M100 Jib Boom, but use
of the M100 Jib System requires use of a Jib Base (sold separately) in addition to the Jib Boom. For a list of compatible Jib Base
models, see Figure 1.
Figure 2 illustrates components of the M100 Jib Boom. See Table 1 for Component Specifications.
The Fixed Upright Assembly (A) serves as the main body of the Jib Boom. The Gusset (C) braces the Rail Assembly (D), which
lets the user move within the established work area. The Connection Eye (E) secures an SRD as a connection point for the user.
The Lifting Ring (F) is used to secure a chain or web strap for transporting the system. For B2 models, the Adjustment Channel
(M) enables height adjustment of the Jib Boom. For B1 models, the Adjustable Upright Assembly (B) enables height adjustment in
coordination with the Adjustment Winch (G). The cable of the Adjustment Winch is connected to the Jib Boom through a series of
pulleys, including the Lower Pulley of the Locking Assembly (I) and Upper Pulley (J). The Rotation Handle (H) allows for rotation
of the Jib Boom after placement. The Rotation Pin (K) secures the Jib Boom to prevent rotation. For B1 models, the Transportation
Pin (L) is used to secure the Jib Boom during transportation.
