7) After ensuring all parts are flat and square, and measurements are right, insert the set screws into the holes of the “90” fittings and tighten them as shown in fig 06. A little more then snug should do. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN SCREWS!   This could result in stripped threads on the fittings.

10) Start at one corner, and insert a zip tie through the grommet in the mesh, then around the frame pole, and into the zip tie’s knuckle. DO NOT TIGHTEN ZIP TIES AT THIS TIME! Move along the frame and repeat it. Once all the Zip Ties are installed loosely, start tightening them to draw the mesh When done, there should be approximately a 1″ gap between the mesh and the frame all around the perimeter as shown in Fig 09. After all Zip Ties are tight, and you are satisfied with the panel, use side cutters and trim off the excess tail on the Zip Ties.
