Because of the cunning design of the Larkin Rescue Frame it is possible to place it right at the edge of the drop. Any slippage on a firm surface can be minimised by picking out a small locating hole for each hinge spike. On soft ground the optional soft ground feet can be fitted and a star picket driven through the triangular hole. If for any reason the hinge spike cannot be used the Larkin Rescue Frame is still very stable and any slippage of the base will always be AWAY from the drop. It fails safe! It is not necessary to leave any space between the edge and the Larkin Rescue Frame for landing the stretcher and outrider. The Larkin Rescue Frame is designed so that the stretcher and outrider can be landed within the frame.
In addition to its use full size the design of the Larkin Rescue Frame permits it to be assembled half size for use in confined spaces, or where a long reach is not required. It can also be used as a tripod or as an A frame support for tarpaulin or similar.
