  1. 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.

    CAUTION To make sure that the mast is standing straight, tighten all the guy wires equally.
  7. Cut the extra guy wire.
  8. Place the black and yellow cable shrouds around the guy wires.

    There is 1 package of cable shrouds for each wire.
