    • Before you begin, be sure you have all parts and tools needed for assembly and a construction area that is at least two meters in diameter.

    • Lay two triangular sections side-by-side with pointed edges and bases adjacent to each other.

    • Since the sections are not flat, it is advisable to prop one end up on a box or similar object to give more stability during assembly.

    • Use the 10 mm nuts and bolts to attach the two plates together. First, hand thread each bolt/nut pair, then use two 10 mm wrenches secure them.

    • DO NOT install a nut and bolt in the THIRD hole from the center (pointed end of the section). This is where the Pipe Ring Bracket is attached later on.

    • After firmly fastening the two sections together, return to the third hole which was left empty. In addition to a nut and bolt, you will also need a pipe ring bracket.

    • Install the 10mm nut/bolt again but with the bolt passing through the single holed side of the bracket. Hand thread and use 10mm wrenches to tighten.

    • Be sure the bracket is NOT installed between the edges of the dish sections.

    • The direction the bracket faces does not matter.

Thank you for these instructions. If it wasn't for these instructions, I would not have been able to put the solar cooker (as seen in the photograghs) together. The seller's manual fail to use photographs as this illustration clarifies.
