Step 1 Be sure to read and familiarize yourself with the overall assembly process and instructions in this manual before beginning. It may be helpful to have someone assist you with the assembly. Fig. 1 Tools Required: #2 or #3 Philips Screwdriver (or standard slotted screwdriver), and Adjustable Wrench. Find a clean, level, preferably carpeted location to assemble your IR Heater. A flat piece of cardboard will works as well. Unpack and identify all components listed on page 3 of this manual and lay them out on the carpeted floor or cardboard piece. Fig. 2 Step 2 Attach mounting bracket for head unit to curved upper arm using 4 threaded bolts. The bracket base will fit inside the upper arm. Securely tighten all bolts. Note: See Fig. 1 for proper orientation of bracket to upper arm. The bracket will only align properly to one correct end of the arm. Beginning at the mounting bracket end, thread the entire electrical cord from the IR head unit & tilt switch component thru the curved upper arm. Attach head unit bracket to the mounting bracket using 4 threaded bolts. Apply all bolts loosely for easier alignment & positioning. Now attach tilt switch box to mounting bracket using 2 bolts. Check to make sure all components fit together properly, then tighten all bolts securely. NOTE: Junction box and electrical cord coming out of the head unit & tilt switch MUST be facing downward when installed. See Fig. 2 for proper position. Electrical junction box points down, tilt switch box is on top Step 3 Attach support collar/flange to weighted base. Thread collar thru hole in base and Hand tighten securely. See Fig. 2A Inner support tube positioned up thru telescopic pole Base & Wheel assembly with support collar/flange Telescopic Pole Fig. 3 Lever Clamps & Knobs Inner support tube Fig. 3a Step 4 Rivets - bottom of inner support tube Slide inner support tube (end with rivets must be towards bottom) thru bottom of telescopic pole & up thru The top. Pull out upper release lever and loosen clamp knob to allow tube to pass thru the top section. See Fig. 3 Pull out second release lever and loosen clamp knob and slide both sections to their lowest position (about 1'' from the top of each respective clamp collars). Do not allow sections to fall below the clamp collar. Tighten both clamp knobs and push in clamp levers to secures to secure both sections.
