Ultra Portable Pylon - Usage


Put legs on mast bottom using 6" bolts with hook facing mast when the leg is extended. In other words. all hooks should face clockwise or counter-clockwise. 

Insert mast joiner into mast top and secure with 2" bolt. Insert masthead into other end of mast top and secure with 2" bolt. Attach flag or streamer to masthead if desired.

Do not insert the mast top assembly into the mast bottom assembly yet.



Carry into place.

Walk the legs out in small increments. Walk two adjacent legs in one lifting and spreading motion. Straighten the mast by spreading two legs on the side that the top of the mast needs to move toward. The feet should be 3 to 4 feet apart.

If the hooks are facing outward, pick up mast bottom assembly above legs, and move the legs in the opposite direction as the first attempt.

Hook a chain onto 2 opposite legs and onto the corresponding hooks on the mast bottom. The chains can make minor corrections to the mast position, but should not be used for major corrections. Reposition the legs as needed.

Slide the masthead into the mast and secure with 2" bolt. 

If winds of more than 5-10 mph are expected, use stakes to hold feet in place.


Tear Down

Remove the mast top assembly.

Remove the chains.

Pick up mast bottom assembly above legs.
