Put the clamps on finger tight at first. Then tighten firmly when sections are in the position you want. Use a six-point box end wrench and six-point nut driver for best results

Remember that your frame gets stronger with each section you add. What seem shaky at first gets rigid as you put together more sections.

Donít worry if you cut a section too short. Save it for use elsewhere. In most projects we find there is little scrap

There are many ways to attach covers to your framework. One simple way is to use a small grommet maker kit and electrical tie straps

By padding the framework, you can prevent damage to the cover due to rubbing. Use old carpet or foam rubber, etc., attach with duct tape

If you plan to disassemble your project and reassemble it later mark the sections for easy reassembly. Use a simple system that makes sense to you. A good marking system will let you put it back together in a quarter of the time it took initially.

You want to paint your clamps to reduce reflections (hunting blinds, etc.) Use a zinc Chromate primer. Other paint may not stick to the clamps.

Frameworks made with electrical conduit and Framemaker clamps are light and very strong. However, please heed our WARNING: FRAMEWORKS MADE WITH FRAMEMAKER CLAMPS SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR SCAFFOLDING, LADDERS, OR ANY OTHER PERSONNEL SUPPORTING FIXTURES (PLAYGROUND FIXTURES, ATHLETIC CONDITIONING, ETC.)
