How to mount Masthero ?

Best mounting location is by second batten from the top (a bit closer to the tip for standard diameter masts, although the clamps bend a bit to accommodate slightly larger diameters).

First put the clamp in place and put the screw all the way through using a screwdriver.

The latest inprovement (from January 2014 on) is new butterfly screw. The screwdriver is not not needed anymore.

Insert mount into clamp, attach wingnut, and, while holding the wingnut, tighten the screw.

(Tightening the wingnut while holding the screw is not recommended as it will be grinding channel in the clamp.)

Safety note: Running a line from camera to the tip of the mast or using Floaty Backdoor is always recommended.
