How can I load legs so they will not flatten out?

Loading Legs Into The Kiln

Legs can be tricky. If you can stand the leg with the feet up, place it in that position on the shelf. When placing the leg horizontal, you need to support the leg with a silica blanket or sand. Any part that will not touch the shelf needs support. You can use the shelf post covered with the silica blanket under the ankle. A silica blanket covered horizontal post on either side of the leg to form a "V" for the leg to rest in also helps prevent collapse.
