Locate guy wire 1 that is on the same side of the mast as the lifting rod.
The installation of guy wire 1 is different from the installation of guy wires 2 and 3. Guy wire 1 is released when the mast is lowered.
To enable easy releasing of guy wire 1, connect the U bolt to the eye nut with a
shackle. Slide the strap onto the U bolt and thread the nuts.
The additional bow shackle may differ from the one shown in the figure.
For guy wires 2 and 3, connect the
U bolt to the eye nut that is installed on the concrete block. Slide the strap onto the U bolt and thread the
Make sure that the guy wire is properly in the key groove.
Secure the guy wires with the rope clips. Place the wire rope clips on the wire so that
the clamp is on the wire that comes from the mast (the tension side). Put the U bolt on
the side of the wire end.
Tighten the U bolt nuts until the initial tension of the guy wires is sufficient.
CAUTION To make sure that the mast is standing straight, tighten all the guy wires equally.

Place the black and yellow cable shrouds around the guy wires.
There is 1 package of cable shrouds for each wire.
