  • 17‑mm and 24‑mm wrenches
  • Hammer
Wear protective eyewear, gloves, and a safety helmet.
To protect your hands, always wear gloves when handling the guy wires.
WARNING Make sure your clothing and equipment do not get tangled in the wires or equipment during installation.

In assembling guy wires, you need:

  • Wedge clamp for guy wire (SH49) (3 pcs) (if you use additional middle guy wires, 6 pcs)

Attach the guy wires with the wedge clamps to the guy wire foundations.

The installation of guy wire 1 is different from the installation of guy wires 2 and 3. Assemble the wedge clamps only for guy wires 2 and 3. Assemble guy wire 1 after the mast is erected.
  1. Connect the U‑bolt to the lifting eye nut that is installed on the concrete foundation.
  2. Slide the strap onto the U‑bolt and thread the nuts.
