To begin, build the legs and slide them into the leg brackets located on the bottom of the blind. Fasten the legs to the leg bracket with the angle facing the outward corner. Now, attach 4 shorter cross braces on each upper side. Then, attach the 8 longer cross braces on the bottom side. Finally, tighten the nuts.

Don’t forget to attach the bumper to the left side porch rail. The bumper will keep the door from hitting the rail.

Part 5: Level

Part 6: Anchor

Anchoring the blind on the standFirst, screw the anchor into the ground below and center of the blind. Hook the turnbuckles to the same side of the leg brackets. Attach one end of the cable to the turnbuckle and run the cable through the loop of the earth anchor. Then, run the other side through the opposite leg bracket hook, pull and secure it to itself. Repeat this process for the other cable and turnbuckle. Finally, tighten each of the turnbuckles until the cable is tight.
