To clarify, this is part of the tilt feature found on all operator control units. If the box is tilted more than a certain amount - believe it is 45 degrees - the feature will send a warning tone to the crewmember and if the box is not righted immediately will apply a penalty application of the air brakes. The operator can temporarily nullify the feature in order to tie a shoelace or operate a ground throw switch.
