STEP 4:

Inserting Panels

Use the step to press panels down, alternating across from each other. Continue pressing alternating panels into grain, one at a time, across from each other. This back and forth strategy helps the tube go in straight and even.

STEP 5:

Bailing Grain

Continue bailing grain and pressing panels down until victim is freed. When enough grain is removed from around the victim, a step may be placed inside of the rescue tube to help a conscious victim climb out or rescuer climb in.
