A: The first step is to install the 18" metal in-ground base. Using a rubber mallet, drive the metal base into the ground until an inch or two is still visible just above the ground. If using a metal hammer, place a block of wood or other solid durable item on top of the base so hammering doesn’t damage the top of the base. Sharp edges on the top of the metal base can tear the Tether Tug and compromise the toy. Once the metal base is in the ground, simply insert the Tether Tug toy into the base. The toy is now ready for play!
The pole slides into and out of the base to allow for mowing and stowing when playtime is over. We recommend the base be installed deep into the ground to allow the mower to drive over it.
