Parts Description, Assembly and Storage

The T-Truss consists of a "frame" and a set of resistance cable groups (left and right).

Frame

The frame breaks down into an interconnecting "truss" (single or multi-segment) and a base.

Resistance Cable Sets

Resistance cable sets consist of two sets of resistance tubes (three tubes to each set) and a hand grip for each set. The buyer of the Standard Economy model has the option of supplying one's own resistance cables. One of the hand-grips which comes with the Super Truss, comes with a "roller wheel" (for performing single-handed exercises).

Reconfigurable Collar Base

The Super Truss comes with a specially designed reconigurable collar which can be converted into a "T" shape or a"V" shape. This flexibility allows the user to assume different types of positions while exercising.

Configurations

The T-Truss has two configurations, the "V" configuration and the "T"configuration. The "V" configuration is used when using the Truss as a two-handed rowing machine. The T" configuration is used for chest presses and for single-handed rowing exercises. In this case, the base platform assembly is used to prop the truss against the corner of a room. For all other exercises, the configuration is a matter of user preference. To change the configurations one simply removes the base platform cotter pin and disconnects the attachment "L" bracket. The user then reconnects the attachment bracket in the desired new position and reinserts the cotter pin.

Assembly and Storage

Assembly: To assemble the truss one places the three sections on the floor in the proper order. Arrows are drawn at the ends of the truss sections indicating the connection points. The sections overlap each other. When the holes line up, the user then inserts the four U-bolts. The holes are marked where each bolt is inserted. The user then tightens the four lock nuts onto the U-bolts. The user now connects the bottom of the truss into the SLB (Socketed L Bracket). The user now inserts the attachment bracket into the SLB, so that the base platform forms a "T" shape. The User now inserts the cotter pin into the base where marked. The user then inserts the two Velcro pads (marked for the base platform) one over each foot of the Base Platform. The other three Velcro pads are inserted over the tip of the truss. The user lets the Velcro pads slide down the truss until they spread out evenly. The user now places the rubber cap on the tip of the truss. The TTT is now ready for use
