Gin Poles/Monopods

Four Things To Consider

  1. A great rule of thumb for spacing tensioned back-ties is 60-90 degrees.
  2. Always secure the legs from skidding out backwards.
  3. Make oppositional front-ties and normal way of life.
  4. Always “error” forward in order to maintain tension on the back-ties (the resultant will settle in in front of the fee).

One Thing To Understand
Guying a monopod/Gin Pole is never about applying equal tension to all legs. A full understanding of the direction of forces (both compression and tension) are crucial.
