This tripod mast can be used either extended out to 10 ft (3 meters) or down to 6 ft. In the extended configuration, a set of guy wires attach to the top of the extended mast and to each of the tripod legs. The tripod mast can be secured to the ground or to other mounting structures. Each leg has a bolt hole that can be used to bolt the tripod mast to a roof top or other mounting platform. When used in the field, a screw in anchor system is used to hold the tripod in place. The anchor helps to prevent any accidental tipping of the tripod mast and extends the wind load characteristics of the tripod.
The legs can be quickly folded up or set into place using the removable locking pins located in each tripod leg center mount.
Optional Items Include the 7221 lightning rod and grounding kit. If required a round fiber carry case is also available.
