4.0 ASSEMBLY OF THE CENTRAL STRUCTURE OF THE PODIUM

The following is required for this operation:
N° 6 black square-section tubular pieces.
N° 1 central element of the structure with a pre-mounted fixing ring for the wooden sections.
N° 6 adjustable threaded feet
N° 12 8x50 bolts
N° 6 hexagonal self-locking nuts
N° 6 flanged hexagonal nuts
N° 1 13-mm combination spanner
N° 1 6-mm hex key
Image

4.1 SCREW THE FEET INTO THE BLACK SQUARE-SECTION TUBULAR PIECES

Lay the 6 square-section black tubular pieces on the ground with the threaded hole facing upwards and screw the 6 feet into the 6 square-section black tubular pieces by turning them clockwise as far as they will go.
Image

4.2 CONNECT THE BLACK SQUARE-SECTION TUBULAR PIECES TO THE CENTRAL ELEMENT OF THE STRUCTURE

1. Position the central element of the structure on the ground, unscrew and remove the fixing ring for the wooden sections and set aside (this will be needed later).
2. Fit a black square-section tubular piece into the relative space in the central element of the structure, making sure the holes align. Repeat for all six tubular pieces.
Image
3. Insert an 8x50 bolt into the outermost hole of the central element of the structure, add a self-locking hexagonal nut and tighten fully with the 13-mm combination spanner and the 6-mm hex key. Do not overtighten as the tubular sections will be later folded inwards. Once tightening is complete, loosen the hexagonal self-locking bolt 1/4 turn in order to ensure that the tubular piece can be folded inwards when the structure is closed. Repeat for all 6 tubular pieces.
Image
Image
4. Once all 6 black square-section tubular pieces have been fitted and fixed, check that they can be folded easily towards the centre of the structure. If they are too stiff or loose, loosen or tighten the hexagonal self-locking bolts. The tubular pieces need to be tightened in such a manner that they need to be moved manually (they should not close unaided).

4.3 TIGHTEN THE SAFETY BOLTS (this is important for the stability of the podium)

The safety bolts are needed in order to stabilise the podium as they stop the black tubular pieces from closing. This is why they must always be inserted when the podium is in use.

1. Insert an 8x50 bolt into the innermost hole on the central element of the structure. Repeat for the other five innermost holes
2. Hand-screw a flanged hexagonal nut onto the 8x50 bolt as far as it will go without tightening. Repeat for all six bolts.
Image
Image

4.4 ADJUST THE FEET (this is important for the stability of the podium)

1. Adjust the feet on the central structure in order to render the surface of the podium perfectly horizontal and to raise the central element of the structure off the ground in order to guarantee increased stability.
Image
2. Check that the feet have been adjusted properly. There should not be excessive thread showing in order to avoid the feet from being damaged.
Image
ATTENTION: The podium can be installed on level floors. Check that the threaded section of the feet is not excessively exposed in order not to damage them.

For sloping floors, find relative methods to even-out the floor.

In the case of uneven floors, install the podium in a concave area rather than a convex area.

5.0 ASSEMBLY OF THE WOODEN TOP

The following is required for this operation:
N° 6 wooden triangles (the colour and type vary according to the model purchased).
The fixing ring for the wooden sections.
Image

5.1 ASSEMBLE THE SIX WOODEN TRIANGLES

1. Position a wooden triangle on the podium structure making sure that it is properly fitted into place
Image
2. Check that the point of the triangle fits under the collar of the central element of the structure.
Image
3. Repeat the previous two operations for all the podium triangles, making sure that they fit together properly, forming a single compact surface.

5.2 TIGHTEN THE FIXING RING FOR THE WOODEN SECTIONS

1. Insert the fixing ring for the wooden sections into the central element of the podium.
2. Turn the ring clockwise making sure that it slots into the relative groove on the tips of the wooden sections, until it is fully tightened.
Image

5.3 CHECK THAT THE PODIUM TOP HAS BEEN INSTALLED CORRECTLY

1. Use a spirit level to ensure that the surface is horizontal.
2. If the surface is not horizontal, use the feet to adjust inclination, as always ensuring that not too much thread is exposed ( see point 4.4)
Image

6.0 FITTING THE POLE INTO THE PODIUM TOP

Take the previously assembled pole with both hands, position it perpendicular to the central hole of the podium and insert it.
Image

THE PODIUM IS NOW ASSEMBLED

7.0 SWITCHING THE POLE FROM SPIN TO STATIC (FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS RELATIVE TO THE MODEL PURCHASED)

7.1 SWITCHING THE POLE FROM SPIN TO STATIC WITHOUT QUICKSPIN™

The following is required for this operation:
N° 1 steel cone-point grub screw
N° 1 4-mm hex key
Image
SPINNING POLE:
In order to use the pole in SPIN mode, it is necessary to insert the steel cone-point grub screw into the threaded hole at the base of the pole and tighten it with the 4-mm hex key, stopping as soon as the grub screw has been fully inserted.
Image
ATTENTION: in order to have the pole in spin mode and not to ruin the pin, never tighten the cone-point grub screw until it stops, but only until it is flush with the threaded hole.
Image
STATIC POLE:
In order to use the free-standing pole in static mode, it is necessary to:
1. Rotate the pole and align the hole on the pole with the hole on the central structure.
Image
2. Turn the steel cone-point grub screw clockwise with the 4-mm hex key until it is fully tightened.
In order to return the pole to SPIN mode: unscrew the cone-point grub screw with the 4-mm hex key by turning it counterclockwise until it is once again flush with the hole (see photo above with anchor).
Image

7.2 SWITCHING THE POLE FROM SPIN TO STATIC WITH QUICKSPIN™

Image
No tools are required for this operation.

In order to switch the pole from SPIN to STATIC and vice-versa, simply lower or raise the Quickspin™ Ring until it clicks into place.
STATIC POLE: Lower the Quickspin™ Ring
SPINNING POLE: Raise the Quickspin™ Ring
Image
7.2.1 OPTIONAL FUNCTION: LOCKING THE QUICKSPIN™ SYSTEM
This is an optional function that allows the Quickspin™ system to be locked into one of the two modes (SPIN or STATIC), thus impeding the passage from spin to static with a click. If the Quickspin™ locking function is not required, do not insert the steel cone-point grub screw.

For this optional function, use the steel cone-point grub screw and the 4-mm hex key.

1. Locking Quickspin™ in the spin position: raise the Quickspin™ ring, insert the steel grub screw into the hole on the ring and tighten fully with the 4-mm hex key. Unscrew and remove the grub screw in order to free the Quickspin™.
2. Locking Quickspin™ in the static position: lower the Quickspin™ ring, insert the steel grub screw into the hole on the ring and tighten fully with the 4-mm hex key. Unscrew and remove the grub screw in order to free the Quickspin™.

8.0 DISMANTLING THE PODIUM

8.1 RIMOZIONE DEL PALO DALLA STRUTTURA DELLA PEDANA:

Grip the pole with both hands and lift it until the steel pin has been completely removed from the central hole in the podium structure. Place the pole on the ground, making sure not to damage it, or on the dedicated Pole Rack.
Image
8.1.1 REMOVING THE POLE FROM THE PODIUM STRUCTURE:
In order to facilitate transportation, the pole can be divided into two sections by simply inserting the 5-mm hex key into the hole in the internal joint, turning the hex key counterclockwise for three complete rotations, and removing the upper section.

ATTENTION: DO NOT TURN THE HEX KEY TOO FAR IN A COUNTERCLOCKWISE DIRECTION, OTHERWISE THE STEEL THREADED BOLT WILL MOVE TOO FAR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, ONCE AGAIN LOCKING THE JOINT.
IF THIS HAPPENS, TURN THE STEEL THREADED BOLT CLOCKWISE AS FAR AS IT WILL GO USING THE 5-MM HEX KEY, AND THEN TURN IT COUNTERCLOCKWISE FOR JUST 3 COMPLETE TURNS.
Image
8.1.2 REMOVING THE STEEL PIN FROM THE POLE:
In order to facilitate transportation of the pole, it is possible to remove the steel pin from it by simply inserting the 5-mm hex key into the threaded bolt on the lower pole section and turning it counterclockwise for 3 complete turns in order to unscrew the threaded bolt and remove the steel pin from the section.

ATTENTION: DO NOT TURN THE HEX KEY TOO FAR IN A COUNTERCLOCKWISE DIRECTION, OTHERWISE THE STEEL THREADED BOLT WILL MOVE TOO FAR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, ONCE AGAIN LOCKING THE STEEL PIN.
IF THIS HAPPENS, TURN THE STEEL THREADED BOLT CLOCKWISE AS FAR AS IT WILL GO USING THE 5-MM HEX KEY, AND THEN TURN IT COUNTERCLOCKWISE FOR JUST 3 COMPLETE TURNS.
Image

8.2 REMOVING THE WOODEN SECTIONS FROM THE PODIUM STRUCTURE:

1. Turn the wooden section fixing ring counterclockwise to raise it.
Image
2. Carefully remove the wooden sections making sure not to drop or damage them.

8.3 FOLDING THE CENTRAL STRUCTURE OF THE PODIUM
