I like it is a manual mechanism for the cargo door. I've seen the same thing over the forward cargo door as well. You can see that you insert a tool and turn it.

Not sure what this one says exactly but usually they indicate the close/open rotation directions, the number of turns required for full open, the max permissable torque, and sometimes a warning not to use impact tools.

sorry to take this off topic, but it looks like there's a smaller door aft of the cargo door. what is that, and what is it's purpose? thanks.

Those are pressure relief doors. Prevent airplane pressurization if the cargo door is not correctly locked. The pressure relief doors are operated by the outer handle, which also unlocks the lower door latches and energize the electrical system control switch.

I assume you mean the bulk cargo door for bags and whatever that isn't put into a container.

Yes TEBguy that door aft of the big door is the access to whats called the bulk belly. As has been stated, thats where you put last minute bags or freight, its actually a fairly large compartment. Some airlines carry spare parts in there for off route charters, or tail number specific parts. As to the orig. question from HAWK21M, I forget exactly what it says but it indicates which direction to turn the drive to manually open (or close) the door. This may sound hard to believe but the door actuator is electric, when the motor does not run, for whatever reason, you can manually crank the door open from this point, of course it has to be unlocked & unlatched first. AHH, I can see you thinking -- this guy is full of BS, If you opened the door from here you would be right in the way-- its not intended that you open the door fully from here, just enough to gain access.

Once you got access to the cargo compartment, the door can be fully open through the lift actuator manual drive socket.

TEBguy, sorry I misunderstood your question.

Yes, B747FE is correct. Or you could work on the drive motor, or replace it. Here/s an experience I had.-- Flt. was a cattle charter (yes, cows will fit in the belly, in special pens) so both belly doors HAD to be open on the ground because cows generate so much heat. The aft door would not open (front door is the same setup) with a speed handle we cranked the door open far enough to get to the circuit breaker, which is on the forward end of the door cutout. Sure enough the c/b was popped, reset it and the door worked normally.

Any precautionary safety feature if anything comes between the door & its Cutout during Door closure.

Nothing that will stop the door. I know of a guy who got his fingers cut clean off as he was operating the door.

That has to be a big motor, that door looks heavy. Also makes one wonder how hard it is to crank the door open/closed.

I have opened the doors on the 757 manually a couple of times. The actual effort required is not high because the actuator has an internal gear which gives a mechanical advantage. Unfortunately, because of the gearing it takes several hundred turns to fully open and close the door. It is a tiring and time consuming process but there is no other way to open the door if the motor is not working. Thank goodness it did not happen very often.

The actuator is not very big at all. Mechanical advantage is gained through reduction gearing. Its actually relatively easy to crank it open. Just lots and lots of revolutions. I'll see if I can come up the numbers. Same set-up is used on the main cargo door with our B747-100/200 freighters.

Mel,

This caution is listed in the B757 AMM:

IF YOU USE A POWER TOOL TO OPEN THE CARGO DOOR, DO NOT TORQUE MORE THAN 225 POUND-INCHES AND DO NOT TURN FASTER THAN 500 RPM. TOO MUCH TORQUE ON THE CARGO DOOR CAN CAUSE DAMAGE.

So, yes, you can use a power tool.
