Fix APU vent screens.
Some mechanics pay little attention in where they place their big feet. Then the vent screens suffer cracks, breaks, and bends from being stepped on with their full weight.
Sometimes it's hard not to step on vent screens and mangle them. So here's what to do to cut down on damage. Make some vent screen covers.
Another solution is to stencil NO STEP on the screen as a reminder. Others suggest painting the screens but aircraft painting TM 55-1500-345-23 does not allow you to paint your bird's vent screens. So watch your step.
