Read these instructions in entirety prior to assembling this product.  

Step 1.  Remove all parts from packaging and review all parts and tools required.  Use the bill or material page to verify all parts and hardware are present.

Step 2.  Securely elevate the blind to the appropriate height using secured rigging and/or equipment.  The lifting height of the blind should not exceed a few inches more than the height of the blind with the stand installed.  It is not recommended that the blind be put on its side to install the stand.  This may result in damage to the blind and/or stand.  

Warning:  Do not lose visual contact with the operator of equipment while installing legs.  Failure to do so may result in injury or death.

Step 3.  Standing on the side of the blind, install the legs in the designated locations.  Ensure the blind and stand are not elevated more than a few inches from the ground while installed.  Do not stand directly under the stand while it is elevated.  Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. (See Image A Below) 

Step 4.  Install the ladder section of the blind using the designated bolting location.

Step 5.  Lower blind into place and stabilize feet of the stand by inserting rebar spikes through the stand pads into the ground.  It is recommended to use ½” x 2’ rebar. 

Warning:  Ensure blind bottom of blind is level before installing rebar spikes.  Warning:  The blind is not secure at this point.  Do not enter the blind until cable or support hardware is installed.  Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. 

Step 6.  Feed one of the cable lines through the holes in the stand legs.  Alternating from top hole to bottom hole every other leg.  Start at one side of the ladder and end at the other side or the ladder.  (See image B below)

Step 7.  On one end of the cable, make a loop enclosing the hole on the ladder with the cable and install the cable nuts around the overlapping cable.  Tighten to ensure the cable will not slip.  

Step 8.  Adjust the turnbuckle so both ends are extended out as far as possible.  Install one end of the turnbuckle in to the opposite ladder hole.  Create a loop in the cable and attach cable to ladder using the turnbuckle.  Make sure the cable is as tight as you can make it by hand when you attach the turnbuckle to the ladder.  

Step 9.  Repeat step 6-8 with the other cable.  You should see two cables cross weaving through the holes of the stand legs.  If there is a whole that does not have a cable running through it, you need to start over.  All openings must have cable passing through.

Step 10.  Tighten the turnbuckles, making sure to adjust both sides evenly, until the cable is tight and the blind is stable.
