Kick Out Pin Failure

A mechanic finished installing the boom stick on a Caterpillar 572G sideboom. While parking the sideboom, the mechanic noticed that the stick had continued to boom in, resulting in the stick bending. The mechanic then shut off the engine and let out the boom line to relieve tension on the boom stick. The sideboom was shut down and tagged out for investigation.
