The CM115 and CM120 tripods include a guy kit; the guy kit is an option for
the CM110. With the mast tilted down in the horizontal position, install the
guy collar over the mast insert, and attach the guy wires as shown in FIGURE
6-5. Return the mast to the upright position and install the locking bracket.
FIGURE 6-5. Guy collar
On the end of each guy line is a case consisting of a hook, clamp, and lever
arm. Rotate the lever arm to the “open” position, and attach the hook to the
tripod leg as shown in FIGURE 6-6. Loosen the Phillips screw, and remove
the slack in the guy line by feeding the load end of the guy wire through the
wedge while pulling up on the dead end (FIGURE 6-7).
After the slack has been removed from the guy lines, tighten the Phillips
screws and rotate the lever arms to “closed” position to tension the guy lines
