Detailed Views of the Tools

The three Jackscrews would be used to secure the side hatch if the locking mechanism were to fail, or if the hatch became warped while open in space.

These Jackscrews suffered the most corrosion. The 4340 low alloy steel parts exhibit significant rust, while the beryllium-copper of the wingnuts display the characteristic green oxidation. Corrosion inhibitor has been applied to all affected tools.
