[TowerTalk] Rohn tilt-over question

I have a 58 foot Rohn 25 tilt-over and have a question that I can't find 
answered in the Rohn literature or on the web.  

The guy who helped me install the tower said that two bolts should be 
installed at the hinge during normal operation (I think this is what 
Rohn calls the "shipping tab").  The manual says these should be 
installed for initial installation, and obviously need to be removed to 
tilt the tower over.   Not being a climber, this means I have to recruit 
a buddy to climb up and remove the two bolts whenever I tilt it over, 
and replace them afterward, which is an inconvenience.   My question 
is:  Is it necessary for these bolts to be installed, or is the 
combination of guys and the boom clamp sufficient?

I followed all of Rohn's instructions and the tower has held up well so 
I don't want to cut corners, but the manual doesn't say whether these 
bolts should be installed, or not.   Thanks for any advice.

73, Bob W9RAN
