How To Assemble a Dress Form with the Wood Tripod Base
all pieces for mannequin dress form on wood tripod base

step 1.

preparing mannequin dress form wooden tripod center

Use a Phillips screwdriver (not provided) to remove the screw at the bottom of the tripod center. This should separate the bottom section from the top.

step 2.

attaching legs for mannequin dress form wood tripod base

Once the bottom piece of the center is removed, there should be three groves revealed at the underside of the top part. Slide each of the three legs into these grooves and secure them in place by reattaching the bottom part to the top using the removed screw.

step 3.

attaching the pole to the mannequin dress form wood tripod base

Slip the metal bar into the socket at the center of the top the tripod.

Note: Occasionally, the hole is sometimes slightly larger than the pole which would cause the pole to wobble. To prevent this, insert a small slip of paper or the like into the hole while the pole is being inserted. Once the pole is secured, any additional paper sticking out of the hole can be removed.

step 4.

different mannequin dress form configurations

The body of the dress form can be attached to the pole either from the center or from the side. Generally, the dress form is attached at the center as this is where it is most stable. Should you wish to display pants/ trousers on the form, the pole should be inserted through the side hole (after, of course, the dress form is wearing the pants/ trousers).

Note: should you wish to attach the pole through the hole on its side, it would be best to push as much of the pole through the hole as possible (see diagram). Fastening the side hole to the very top of the pole will cause the dress form to lean to the other side.

The height of the dress form can be adjusted by raising and then tightening the top pole.

step 5.

attaching the mannequin dress form cap

The cap is attached on top of the neck of the dress form by either securing in inside the neck hole or over the neck hole, depending on the type of the cap you had ordered.

Note: For reasons beyond our control, some of the caps might be unequally sized - resulting in a difficult fit. Generally, this issue can be completely resolved by gently squeezing the neck and applying slight pressure when attaching the cap. Should it prove to be too difficult, please contact us and we will gladly send you a replacement.
