Lemma 13.5.2. Let $\mathcal{D}$ be a pre-triangulated category. Let $S \subset \text{Arrows}(\mathcal{D})$.

**Proof.**
Assume $S$ contains all identities and MS6 holds. Let $f : X \to Y$ be an isomorphism of $\mathcal{D}$. Consider the diagram

The rows are distinguished triangles by Lemma 13.4.9. By MS6 we see that the dotted arrow exists and is in $S$, so $f$ is in $S$.

Assume MS1, MS5, MS6. Suppose that $f : X \to Y$ is a morphism of $\mathcal{D}$ and $t : X \to X'$ an element of $S$. Choose a distinguished triangle $(X, Y, Z, f, g, h)$. Next, choose a distinguished triangle $(X', Y', Z, f', g', t[1] \circ h)$ (here we use TR1 and TR2). By MS5, MS6 (and TR2 to rotate) we can find the dotted arrow in the commutative diagram

with moreover $s' \in S$. This proves LMS2. The proof of RMS2 is dual. $\square$
