Animation - Setting
up the chair:
Set up is quick. The three components
of the bino chair are large items but they are relatively compact
for transport since all three are flat. The ground board and chair
base could be left together for transport. I remove my 25X100
binoculars from the bino mount when not in use, but one could
keep them attached. It is important to set up on a level area.
I carry a few small blocks of wood with me to use to level the
My Setup Procedure:
Place ground board on ground and level. I keep the chain and small
sprocket on the ground board.
Place the chair base on the ground board. I keep the drill on
the chair base but it can be easily removed and installed if desired.
The drill chuck needs to line up with the small sprocket/arbor.
Tighten the drill chuck. My drill chuck tightens by hand.
Place reclining chair on chair base and attach bungee cords.
Attach binoculars to computer tray.............Done!
