How to reset your spider.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

The Spider training device, NSN 6920-01-570-0648, allows Soldiers to simulate using the munition control unit (MCU) without having to fire Class V munitions or be on a firing range. The only thing the Spider can't do is launch a Class V munition like a Claymore M18A1 through the munition adapter module or fire the miniature grenade launcher.

The munition control unit must be sterilized after a safety or system malfunction. A sterilized MCU can't power up or fire any munitions.

THE SPIDER LETS YOU SIMULATE STERLIZATION.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED YOU MUST RESET the SPIDER.

HERE'S HOW ...

* Make sure the mission control unit trainer (MCUT) power switch is OFF.

* Remove the battery cover.
