Craftsman 1000w Halogen Worklight
With the tripod completely collapsed as it came in the box, the knob that loosens the three tripod legs is at the head of the tripod. Loosen the knob and lower the legs until the support brackets are parallel with the floor. I find it easiest to do this if I start by pulling each of the legs away from the mainshaft. I then rest the bottom of the tripod against the floor and press down on the leg bracket/clamp with both hands. When the legs contact the floor and stop moving, I lift the tripod and hold the base of the mainshaft with one hand and press the leg bracket/clamp down with the other hand. Be sure to tighten the knob once you have the legs adjusted correctly. Photo: Ryan King, 2006.
