To release the foot pedal, first raise the lock into the unlock position.
Gently lift the foot pedal upwards to open the clamping mechanism. The clamps will spring (!) into a vertical position.

Give the trunk a straight and even cut. Set the trunk in the center of the stand onto the spike. Make sure the trunk and spike have contact but do not use force. Do not drill a hole into the trunk.

Push down the foot pedal. Repeat pushing until the clamping mechanism securely fastens the trunk.
When tree and trunk are well positioned and securely fastened, slide the lock into the locked position to secure the foot pedal.
Add tap water to keep your tree fresh.
