Job and Armando-

The stiffening system is similar to the spreaders and stays of sailboats to stiffen the masts.

After lacing and securing the low stretch line as shown in the manual photos, extend some element (monitor, batteries, and/or telescoping post) to tension the line.

This tensioning removes the flex inherent in extended (long mode) operating, and is also useful whenever violent moves are used.

It is not necessary to use the stiffening system under most operating conditions.

Hope this clarifies things.

Jerry
