Full French Style Easel Instructions
1. To attach the adjustable mast: loosen brass colored knobs on Lid Support Arms and unfasten lid latches. Lift the lid to an upright position and tighten brass colored knobs on both Support Arms.

Insert the bolt into the washer, then through the predrilled hole and on the Lid is visible. Insert the bolt into the washer, then through the predrilled hole and tighten on the back-top side of the lid with know.
Both the Top & Bottom Canvas Holders are adjusted by loosening the brass colored knobs on the Support Arms and on the Lid.
2. To lower the front easel legs: loosen the wing nuts attaching the legs to the easel case and pull outward on opposite end of legs. Swing legs down until they fit into the grove on the sides of the case, then tighten wing nuts securely. To lower the back easel leg: loosen wing nuts on the underside of the case and nap leg out until the Back Leg Support is straight. Swing middle section of back leg down and then tighten the wing nuts securely.
By loosening and tightening knobs on telescoping legs, the easel height can be adjusted to provide a level working surface on any terrain.
3. To take the easel down again, close and latch the case lid and fold the legs up in reverse order.
Practice setting up and taking down the easel a few times while it is empty. This way it will not seem so awkward to set up while the easel is filled with supplies.
