Care & Assembly Instructions
NOTE: Two person assembly & dismantling required
1. Take each element from the bag and organise them into types
2. Take the two tripods and extend the feet as wide as possible for maximum stability (crossbars should be horizontal). Tighten the grey butterfly screw on each tripod.
3. Then raise the lower extension pole on each tripod to full height and tighten its grey butterfly screw. Do not raise the upper extension pole yet.
4. Assemble the four metal tubes for the crossbar. The two longer tubes go at each end, with the slightly shorter tubes in the middle.
5. Pass the assembled metal tube through the loop at the top of the green fabric.
6. With assistance from a second person fit the metal tube with the hanging fabric onto the upright tripods.
7. Again with assistance, raise the upper extension pole on each tripod to the required height. (Idea: If the crossbar is left lower than the full 2m height it gives more green screen floor space on which subjects may stand while being filmed). Tighten the grey butterfly screws.
8. Use the four grip clasps to hold the fabric steady onto the upright poles of the tripod.
Idea: If you wish to have a narrower green screen leave one or both of the shorter metal crossbar tubes out of the assembly and push the excess fabric to one side.
9. Reverse the above process
10. Fold the fabric carefully to reduce creases and therefore improve video quality
