In order to seat the poles, strike each end of the pole
very hard 5 to 6 times on a piece of scrap wood or
cardboard. This must be done even if the poles cover
the slots before seating.
Measure from the top of the Top Pole to the bottom of the Middle
Pole. It must measure 83 1/2” or less. If it measures longer than
83 1/2”, strike it again on the wood. If it is still too long, do not
complete assembly. Call our Customer Service Department.
Align the hole in the Middle Pole with the slot in the Bottom Pole and slide the Middle Pole over the Bottom Pole.
Do not jam the poles together until instructed.

seating, you must strike them on the

the poles correctly could allow the poles

If the Top and Middle Poles do not completely
cover the slots on the Middle and Bottom Poles
after seating, DO NOT COMPLETE ASSEMBLY. Call
our Customer Service Department.
Note: There are two screw holes at the
bottom of the pole. The correct hole will
be slightly larger and slightly higher up
on the pole.
Insert two self-tapping screws
(PB) into the back of the pole at
the locations shown.
