               a. The locking bar shall be designed to freely rotate a full 360
                  degrees and shall be constructed of zinc-coated, cadmium, or

                  durable material, remain securely in place, and allow the

               b. No permanent deformation to the holes in the semi-automated
                  lifting area of the cart, which support the locking bar,
                  shall occur when a force is applied sufficient to bend the

	       c. The hole for the locking bar shall not have a greater

                  not touch the inside wall of the cart when the bar is pushed

                     entity and match the following format:  The 1st two
                     numbers shall be the last two digits of the year

                     sequential manufacturing number of all carts manufactured
