Lemma 13.4.15. Let $\mathcal{D}$ be a pre-triangulated category. In order to prove TR4 it suffices to show that given any pair of composable morphisms $f : X \to Y$ and $g : Y \to Z$ there exist

isomorphisms $i : X' \to X$, $j : Y' \to Y$ and $k : Z' \to Z$, and then setting $f' = j^{-1}fi : X' \to Y'$ and $g' = k^{-1}gj : Y' \to Z'$ there exist

distinguished triangles $(X', Y', Q_1, f', p_1, d_1)$, $(X', Z', Q_2, g' \circ f', p_2, d_2)$ and $(Y', Z', Q_3, g', p_3, d_3)$, such that the assertion of TR4 holds.
