First comes the WIF extender, then the APFR, Navias is forgetting the first one.

By the way, I think the link to the Execute Package wasn't posted here yet:

Have had to put SSRMS back to APFR setup location so that Ron Garan can do a safety tether swap to the arm.  Found he was unable to do it after the arm was moved to the APFR ingress position.

Interesting FRR note on the NTA work:

"Overgloves may be removed per crew preference for the following NTA prep tasks: QD (Quick Disconnect) ops and thermal cover installation and electrical connector ops.

"Do not wear overgloves while holding the NTA on the SSRMS (Space Station Remote Manipulator System).

"Safety issue: Lack of tactile feel during SSRMS maneuvers with NTA increases risk of losing NTA and possible subsequent vehicle damage. Overgloves will be worn at all other times during the EVA unless crew fatigue/safety is at risk."
