Step 0: Get Ready for Install/Setup
Standup Banner install isn’t hard, it just takes a little bit of time if this is your first setup. Set aside about a half hour or so.Pro Tip: Before you take everything out of the bag, remember or take a photo of how everything is arranged. This will help you at the end of the night when putting everything back in the bag to make sure it is all packed correctly, safe and secure.
Step 1: Remove Everything
Remove everything out of the bag. You should see that all the poles and connectors are held together with some elastic bands, make sure you keep these for packing up later. Go ahead and remove all the plastic around all of the pieces. The only plastic we recommend you save is tiny plastic bag holding the two hex screws and hex key.Pro Tip: Did we mention to take a photo of the bag so you know how everything goes back in? Now’s your last chance.
Step 2: Setup Top and Sides
We recommend starting the setup with the top bar and side bars. This will create the frame that will then go into the feet.
Each piece is labeled with blue stickers that will correspond with what other piece should fit in there. The only piece that is not labeled is the crossbar that goes at the bottom and attaches to the two feet using the hex screws. Each piece also assembles and goes together using the easy push-pins.
Locate the top bar, this one “should” be labeled with a “B3” and a “B6” on either end. Connect this to the two side pieces, that should be labeled “B1”, “B2”, “B4″, B5”.
Step 3: Insert Frame into Feet
Once you have the top and sides together you can insert them into the corresponding feet.Pro Tip: If you are doing this installation by yourself it might be easier to leave the frame on the ground and insert the feet while it is there and then raise the entire structure once the frame and feet are all connected.
Step 4: Assemble Crossbar
The crossbar is the only piece that will not have any blue stickers on it. Use the push-pins to put it together and align it with the two remaining holes at the base of the feet of the standup. Then using the two provided hex screws and hex key, screw them in on the opposite side of the feet.Pro Tip: You may need to spread out the feet and frame a little when inserting and aligning the crossbar.
Step 5: Pillowcase Graphic Install
Almost there! Now grab your pillowcase graphic and start in one corner of the frame and start sliding it down that frame about six inches to a foot. Then go to the other side of the frame and do the same there. Now repeat this process, sliding the graphic down a foot or two at a time till you have it stretched all the way to the bottom of the crossbar.Pro Tip: If at all possible try and keep your graphic from touching the ground during this process. This will keep it from getting dirty and looking great gig after gig.
Step 6: Zip Up Graphic
Finally, pull and wrap the bottom of the graphic around the crossbar and use the zipper to zip it up tight. It might take a little elbow grease to pull the graphic tight enough together and get the zipper together but just be patient, you’ll get it, and it will just get easier each time you do it.Pro Tip: Don’t let your bass player do this part, he will most likely get frustrated, give up, go to the bar and order triple tequila shots, fall into his bass rig during your set, bend his input jack and your whole show will be ruined.
Step 7: You’re Done!
Take a set back and admire your hard work. Snap a pic of your completed standup on stage and tag us on all your social posts. Go enjoy a cold beverage to celebrate a job well done.
