In all Suffolk Chapters, the Square and Compasses are placed in position to the left of the VSL, as seen from the west, by the Janitor, and are never touched at any point before, during, or after the ceremony. But it is noted that in Warwickshire Ritual, the DC arranges the square and compasses at the opening, but there is no reference to them being moved again during the closing ceremony.
It is suggested that, because the Square and Compasses are placed on the VSL in the craft, they need to be moved and adjusted when the VSL is opened or closed. But, the displaced positions used in the RA, obviate the need for them to be touched or adjusted.
