Setup is easy and does not need any tools. You can do it by yourself. Watch the video before you put it together, because it is possible to bend the rod tips too far, and then they may crack. We have assembled many of these using the technique shown in the video and have never had a problem. The part to be careful with is the final connection into the circle. Damage to the rods or possible injury could occur if they spring away unexpectedly.
It can be hard to get the top circle apart while the rods are bent going into the fittings. This video shows you how to straighten it out and easily take the stand apart. The rods are springy! Damage to the rods or possible injury could occur if they spring away unexpectedly. Don’t disassemble it with children in the room, and don’t disassemble it inside your clients’ homes, until you are very comfortable with the process and can always disassemble it under control.
