The CM106K Tripod Kit contains the hardware necessary to construct a 3 m (10 ft) tripod. It is designed to save shipping cost by having the customer obtain steel pipe and a grounding rod locally. The kit contains the parts to assemble the pipes into a tripod, including feet, joints, bolts and nuts, lightning rod, and other parts. The customer obtains lengths of steel pipe and a copper ground rod from a local supply house. The CM106K is primarily intended for overseas shipments.
