These stakes and guy ropes are all that will support
the mast until it is fully extended. Ensure that
additional personnel are provided and briefed on their
duty in high wind situations.
Locate the reel of guy ropes and remove the first three guys marked with a blue band. Clip the fixed
ends to the stakes and the other end to the blue stay plate on the mast. Use the three holes which are
spaced 120 degrees apart.
Use the guy adjusters and the level on the handle of the mast to coarse level the mast. Fine level the
mast by driving the stakes further into the ground.
Rotate the mast handle to face downwind.
Rotate the cam clamps on the mast sections above the lowest mast section (handle section) to face
Drive pin through hole in rear of the mast base.
LAY OUT OUTER STAKES
Pick up two 15-inch stakes, and a hammer for the next steps.
Attach black (no tensioner) guy rope clip to the black guy plate: pick up a hammer and 2 stakes; start
out along the line of the base plate/blue 1st guy rope until a red band is found on the rope.
The ropes used for the black guy plate are the only
ropes with a stake-positioning (red) band.
This is the proper place for the 1st stake; drive the stake in with a 30-degree tilt away from the mast.
Drive a second stake one pace beyond, and to the right or left of the first stake with a 30-degree tilt,
away from the mast.
