Tip When Tightening

In order to keep pedestal bases flat to standing surface, we advise lightly hold down each pedestal with the flat of your hand while tightening

Center Hinge Lifting During Clamp Tightening

Ideally, the center hinge sits flat on the supporting surface along with the pedestals. Occasionally you may notice the hinge lifting as you tighten the black hand nuts. This is simply part of the leveling process of your ShowStackers™ after adjustment, and is easily rectified.

Place your hand flat on the gold stickers at the center, while gently pushing the top of each ShowStackers™ pedestal away from the center.

Center Hinge Lifting During Training

Though uncommon, some breeds can kick back with the rear legs quite strongly whilst stack training, and may cause the center hinge to lift. If this becomes an issue consider the following:

  • Place a small weight on the center hinge section to reduce lift, or
  • Open the ShowStackers™ tube legs fully outwards as per the configuration in the adjacent image. Note the new orientation of the center gold stickers

Full Assembly Instructions: Large & Giant

If you decide to remove your pedestals from the base frame, the following instructions will help you fit the correct pedestal to the correct base frame arms.

  • Unfold the hinged base frame on a flat surface with stickers facing up (see picture below).
  • Stacker pedestals are left and right handed, and are marked with black and purple dots, with corresponding dots on the hinge, to enable correct assembly.
  • To find which pedestal goes on which tube, It’s simply a matter of matching the dots: Black to Black, Purple to Purple.
  • Loosely arrange the pedestals around the hinged base frame until the correct dot positions are achieved.
  • Fully undo the black hand tighten nut
  • Slide pedestal onto corresponding base frame tube
  • Tighten Black hand tighten nuts

Just remember the dots on the pedestal always face the hinge (the middle).

It’s that simple. match the dots.

Final Note

The above assembly instructions are really just to help and get you started. Even if you mismatch the pedestals and arms, your ShowStackers™ will still work, but may lose a small portion of its intended flexibility.

Your completed Showstacker should resemble the final image.
