LEVERLOCK CLOSURE INSTRUCTIONS


                  The following procedure must be carried out in order to close the drum correctly:


          1 . CHECK GASKET – to ensure cover gasket is properly fitted into cover         groove (see Fig. 1 or 2).


           2 . PLACE COVER ON DRUM – being careful to properly seat gasket around         curl (see Fig 3).


           3 . OPEN LEVERLOCK – and place expanded ring on to the drum cover with         the vertical-skirt hugging the drum body (see Fig. 5).


           4 . CLOSE LEVERLOCK – by slowly and cautiously pulling the LEVERLOCK        so that the outer ring engages the cover / body juncture. Downward pressure        along with tapping the outside of the ring may assist in an even closure (see        Fig. 6).


          5 . ENGAGE LOCK  – to complete closure.
