FIGURE 6-2. Tripod mast and insert
The tripod base has two sets of right-angled holes for attaching the mast;
typically the lower set is used (FIGURE 6-3A). The mast is attached to the
base with a pin, and secured in the upright position with a locking bracket.
Both the pin and the locking bracket are secured with a lanyard.
To attach the lower mast section, hold the mast upright and align the hole in the
bottom of the mast with the holes in the tripod base. Insert the pin through the
holes, and rotate the wire retainer over the end of the pin as shown in FIGURE
6-3B. The pin should be seated in the bottom of the hole when the mast is
upright. Lift the mast up so that the pin is in the upper end of the hole to allow
the mast to be tilted down to a horizontal position.
