Install Tripod Screw

The tripod mount needs a 3/8" to 1/4" screw adapter so it can be secured to a camera tripod. Insert and fasten the tripod screw adapter to the center of the tripod mount. Use a large flat screwdriver to fully tighten the screw.

Install T-Nuts to Aluminum Extrusions

The oval T-Nuts are designed to be slotted into the aluminum extrusion. Grab both aluminum extrusion bars and insert two t-nuts. These will be used to secure the tripod mount to the aluminum bars.

Tripod Mount Pre-Install

Position the two aluminum extrusion bars so the tripod mount can be rested over them. Orient the parts so the mounting holes are positioned over the extrusion bars. Slide the T-Nuts so the mounting holes line up with the ones in the Tripod Mount.

Secure Tripod Mount

Insert and fasten 4x M4 screws to fix the Tripod Mount to the two aluminum extrusion bars. Do not fully tighten the screws, leave them loose. The M4 screw should be threaded through the T-Nuts. The tripod mount should be able to slide along the slotted aluminum extrusions. We will fully tighten the screws later on in the build.
