How to Assemble the Full Body Professional Dress Form
all pieces for the full body professional mannequin dress form

step 1.

building the base for the full body professional mannequin dressform models

Install all four castors (wheels) by screwing them into the four holes underneath the base.

Slide the pedal into the base so that the center of the pedal rests on the small bar and the end of the pedal is squarely underneath the base.

step 2.

attaching bottom pole to full body mannequin professional dress form

Slide the spring through the bottom chrome pole and insert the pole into the hole of the base. The bottom of the pole should pass through the hole of the base and rest on the end of the base pedal. The pole then needs to be secured tightly to the base by tightening both of the included t-screws for the base.

The spring should be resting on the disc on the middle of the pole.

Please see this PDF for more information on properly installing the pole.

step 3.

attaching the curved upper pole to the bottom pole

When the pole is at rest the tension of the pole should be causing the twin triangles on the top of the base to expand. Once the pole is securely fastened to the base, depressing the base pedal should release this tension (of the twin triangle section on the top of the pole) allowing the upper curved black pole to be slid onto the bottom pole (this step might require a second person to help). Once the upper pole is at your desired height release the pedal (which will cause the triangles to expand and will hold the black pole in place).

step 4.

attaching the finial to the top of the form

Screw the finial into the top of the form's neck.

step 5.

secure the full body form to the completed base

Hang the body form on the completed base pole. The finial should be secured to the claw end of the curved black pole with the included lever screw.

To adjust the height of the form at any time, simply depress the pedal, set the curved pole at the desired height and release the pedal.

how to tighten the dress form pole

(optional) For use with very heavy garments (or if you ever find the pole loosening throughout the life of your TSC form), the pole's tension can be tightened. To do you would need two wrenches. One wrench should be used to hold the nut at the top of the pole (above the triangle section) in place while the second wrench is used to twist the nut at the bottom clockwise. The farther up the pole this bottom nut is screwed on, the stronger the pole's tension will be.
