3. Rebbi Akiva is Machshir an act of Chalitzah that is not done in anyone's presence.
4. Although the reading of the Parshah is not Me'akev, the Yavam and Yevamah must at least be capable of reading the Parshah.

The Gemara says that a shoe that was reserved for the honor of a Zaken (for Tachrichim) is not valid for Chalitzah, because it is not used for walking. Why does the Gemara say that it was reserved for a Zaken, instead of saying that it was reserved as Tachrichim for a Mes? The answer is that "reserved for a Mes" implies that he already died, and if that is the case, then there is another reason for why it is invalid for Chalitzah: According to Abaye, anything reserved for a Mes is forbidden. Therefore, the Gemara mentions that it was reserved while the person was still alive, and even so it is not valid for Chalitzah because it is not used for walking. (Aruch la'Ner)


Chalitzah may be done only during the day. Chalitzah done at night is not valid. Chalitzah may not be done on Shabbos and Yom Tov. It may be done on Chol ha'Mo'ed. Some say that Chalitzah should not be done on Erev Shabbos or Erev Yom Tov, and that is the Minhag.
The reason why Chalitzah is not done on Erev Shabbos and Erev Yom Tov is that Din is prohibited on those days. (Gra)
