Item 62286
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY: Contact local utility companies to ensure that the installation area is
free of pipes, cables, and other hazards BEFORE installing anchors or choosing installation area.
1. Position the frame in the desired installation location.
The location must be flat, level, and stable
with good locations for the Anchors (11‑1).
2. Level the frame end-to-end and side-to-side.
3. Measure the width of the frame at front and back; it
should be 10′ 2" wide.
The distance diagonally in one direction should
be equal to the distance diagonally in the other
direction.
If any measurements do not match, adjust the
frame and retake measurements until they
are equal within a reasonable tolerance.

Maintenance
Note: Verify that there are no utility lines nearby
before driving anchors. If there are rocks
or other obstacles, holes may need to be
drilled first to allow proper anchoring.
c. Pull the Cable tight and secure it using a
Cable Clamp (11‑3). Tighten the two nuts on
the Cable Clamp evenly to secure the Cable.
d. Repeat for all remaining Anchors
and Corner Legs.
