SET UP IN JUST SECONDS.

The TTS-160 Panther Folding Pier can be set up in seconds. Just unfold the legs, place the centre pier tube and attach the three tension rods. No tools are needed and there are no loose screws or other small parts to handle in the dark.

See setup video..

ATTACH MOUNT HEAD WITH A FLIP OF A FINGER

The mount head is attached to the pier with the unique Pier Adapter. Just place the mount head on top of the pier – rotate it as needed – and lock it by rotating the hand wheel.

The Pier Adapter is installed on the mount head and stays there during transport and storage.

LEVEL THE PIER AS NEEDED

The TTS-160 Mount does not require that the pier is levelled. But for many other mount heads this is required. Therefore we offer a version of the Panther Folding Pier with adjustable feet. These feet can also be acquired later and installed by the user (only possible on piers produced in 2019 and later).

See the user manual for details…
