Abstract
The Low Altitude Parachute Extraction System (LAPES) is a convenient method for dropping a plane-load of equipment into a remote location. It is, however, difficult to dismantle the LAPES platform so that it may be returned via small aircraft. The difficulty is due to the many Phillips-head screws that hold the side railing to the panels. A power impact wrench, for example, gives little satisfaction. The note describes a tool that removes these screws with a success rate of about 95 percent.
