  10. At the ends of the track, grab and turn the track lock handle toward the unlock position. The label beside the handle should indicate the correct direction to lock/unlock. 
  11. Repeat step for the other side track lock handle.
  12. Lift the track with both hands and place one end of the track on the post's track holder. The track should fall into place and sit flat on the track holder of the post. Note: Be sure the handles are in an open position before placing on the post assembly.
  13. Place the other end of the track on the other post assembly.

Alternate and repeat between both posts until desired height is reached. Note: A caution sign at the 7 feet mark indicated that the end of the post is approaching. Carefully extend the post until the stop sign or 7.5 feet.
