Front and back panels are bolted onto the crate.

Removal of the crated sculpture (a combined weight of 975kg) is done using a fork-lift truck. Forks are manoeuvred very carefully into the slots in the top section of the plinth (which now forms the base of the inner crate), and the crate is lifted clear of the plinth. The fork-lift backs away from the plinth, and the crate is lowered to the floor. It can then be transported through the galleries using a pallet truck.
