RTS DIY: TRIPODS

Page 3


You will probably need at least 5 people to erect a tripod made with steel poles:

At least one strong person to lift each of the two main legs by walking down beneath it from apex to base;
one person to do the same with the third leg and at a crucial moment, to swing this leg out and to prop up the 'A';
and one person with their foot braced against the base of each main pole to stop it skidding forward.

With aluminium poles the job is easier, demanding only 3 people.
