Step 1: Select a setup location. Find a flat area where you want to set up your tripod. Even if the ground is uneven, try to select a spot that is as flat as possible. This will help stabilize your tripod.
Step 2: Use the J-hooks to secure the tripod into the ground.
Step 3: Check with a bubble level. Place a bubble level on a center pole. Check for level, from front to back and side to side. Adjust the legs if necessary.
Step 4: Test for stability by gently shaking the tripod. If it wobbles, adjust the legs until it feels stable.
Step 5: Once your tripod is stable, you can proceed to attach a center pole. Use the provided screw sets to secure it in place.
