The laborer will motion for the crane operator to lift and set the joist. The laborers receiving the joist will guide it into place, and the crane operator will keep the tool tight with tension until he gets the OK from his crew that the joist is secure and in place. At this time the crane operator will release the tension on the tool and the tool will sit down on the joist releasing the locking mechanism. The laborer at the end with the rope can gently pull on the rope to open the E-Z JOIST RELEASE, at this time the OK CLEAR is given to the crane operator to remove the E-Z JOIST RELEASE. The tool is now free to make the next pick.
