Easy Set-Up: Parts (no tools needed): top pole; bottom pole; center pole; Hit-A-Way Jr. ball; cord; couplings; plug; base. 1. Fill the base with water or sand. Carry the base using the hand indentations on the sides of the base to a flat, level surface. 2. Using the two pole sections with the attached Hit-A-Way device and the center pole, insert into each other with the two couplings, for a snug fit. Attach the entire pole into the base. 3. Your Hit-A-Way Jr. is now ready for use. Swing the ball away from you to wrap it around the pole, hitting the ball each time it unwinds. Make sure base is on a level surface for optimum results. Adult supervision recommended. T-ball Set Up Options: Remove top pole along with ball. (Keep bottom pole and ball connected, set aside.) The Hit-A-Way Jr. can be converted into a tee with two different height options. 1. For a taller tee, remove the top pole and coupling from the rest of the system. The top pole needs to be placed on the ground, as the Hit-A-Way Ball and cord will still be attached to the bottom pole. 2. For a shorter tee, remove all three poles from base. Take the center pole and place it back into the base with a coupling on top.
