Unfold tree stand until the legs are perpendicular. Insert eyebolts and tighten gently.
Insert the pole of the bottom section of the tree into the assembled tree stand. The bottom section has a tapered end. Tighten the eyebolts as necessary. Plug the electric cord into wall outlet. Start with the bottom row of large artificial Christmas tree branches and gently pull down a few branches. Tie up the remaining upper rows of the tree branches in the closed position with a piece of rope or a bungee cord that will fit around the closed branches. Start with the twigs closest to the pole; pull twigs alternately upward and outward working your way out to the tip of the branch. Work row by row to the upper part of the tree section. When you complete a section, add the next section.
Insert the middle section of the tree into the bottom section. Insert plug into bottom section plug. Gently pull down a few branches, repeat shaping twigs like the bottom section. When you complete a section, add the next section. If your tree has more than three sections, insert the next section and proceed shaping as you have in the past sections.
Insert the top section into the middle section. Insert plug from the top section into the middle section plug, (unless your tree has a foot switch. Make sure to follow insructions included with your tree). Repeat shaping twigs like the bottom sections. The artificial Christmas tree top section will be shaped differently. After shaping the top section twigs like the bottom sections, gently curve tips up to give a more natural appearance. Pull the long single tip up to point to the ceiling. Don't be afraid to shape and bend the branches aggressively to your liking to mold to a perfect look.
