TALE, the Telescope Array Low Energy extension is designed to lower the energy threshold to about $10^{16.5}$ eV. The TALE surface detector will include an infill array of 76 scintillation counters (40 with 400 m spacing and 36 with 600 m spacing) and an addition to the TA SD of 27 counters. We have already deployed 35 counters with 400 m spacing in April 2013. For the additional 68 counters, we will use refurbished AGASA scintillation counters, each of which consists of AGASA scintillators, a new PMT and an improved the Telescope Array surface detector electronics. Here we report the status of the detectors and simulation.
