The ramp's opening mechanics differs from the standard cargo bays. The construction of  the "standard" types are opened on both endings, making the stacking possible, and having pair of doors in the side of the bay for the possibility cargo transfer.

The Mk3 Cargo Ramp is a ramp for Mk3-sized cargo bays designed to allow transfer of cargo on and off a (space-)/aircraft. It is used on the Mallard.

Usage

Open ramp

The ramp's opening mechanic differs from that of standard cargo bays. "standard" types open on both sides, making stacking it on a rocket possible, and having a pair of doors in the side of the bay for cargo transfer. This part lowers a ramp making driving in and out of the cargo bay by a smaller rover possible.

To open and close the ramp, right-click the on the ramp, and push the Open/Close button. An action group can also can be used for this purpose; by employing the Toggle Ramp command, the doors can be opened and closed by a single keystroke. The opening angle can be tweaked by the bar of the DeployLimit ( - the number in the bar doesn't mean the angle in degree!). Use it carefully - the opening torque is not limited, and so the ramp can lift up or damage the whole craft.

Product description
