    • Assemble the top part using the top bracket (3D printed) and the M6 bolts as shown.

    • Cut the sides of the L channel aluminum beams on each of their edges by aprox 20mm and then bend them gently inwards. Then drill M4 holes on the bended side.

      • Attach the L channel aluminum to the 20x20 aluminum beams as shown using M4 bolts.

    • Insert an M4x20mm bolt on the top bracket, and secure it with a bolt in place as shown. This will be used to tighten in place the vertical aluminum tube.

    • Drill M5 (or what fits) holes on the middle of the vertical sides of the L channel aluminum beams.

      • Pass the cable ties through the holes and secure them using single cable connector strips.

    • Once all 3 ties are in place, slide the Φ22 aluminum pipe through the top and the bottom 3D printed brackets.

    • Secure and tie all bolts. Adjust the height of the aluminum central pipe if needed.

    • Your tripod is now complete!

      • You can dissemble and easily carry the tripod by unsecuring 2 of the 3 cable ties, detaching one side for each of the three L channel aluminum beams and loosing the top bracket bolts.
