Setting Up The Fuel Can Stand
When using liquid fuel, the fuel can stand must be assembled in order to mount the fuel can in the proper
position. The fuel can, outfitted with a fuel can gravity feed adapter, must be mounted to the stand with
the gravity feed adapter facing down.
1. Insert the bottom leg assembly (1) into the top leg
assembly (2) until each leg is locked in place. Be sure to
orient each bottom leg so that the stabilizing straps (3)
are positioned toward the inside of the stand. Ensure
that the straps are not twisted.
2. Spread the assembled leg assembly (4) until the
stabilizing straps (3) are fully extended and the stand is
stable. The stabilizing straps (3) are designed to ensure
the stand is stable and are also designed to prevent the
stand from sinking into snow and mud.
3. Lower the left (5) and right (6) support arms so that each
is at a right angle to its attached leg. Place the tripod
brace (7) under the top bracket (8) of the stand and clip
into position over the front of the top bracket.
