The floating hide 2 can be easily assembled. The connecting base is the most time consuming, especially for the first couple of times. I myself leave the connecting base assembled and transport it in one piece.
With the connecting base assembled, the rest is quick work. First, mount the tripod head on the connecting base. After putting the two floats in the two straps on the side, they can be inflated. There are orange markings on the floats to make sure they are connected at the right position.
If the floats have enough pressure, you can take off the pump. Thanks to the good valve, almost no air leaves the float. The valve can be secured by a cap.
If the air temperature is significantly higher than the water temperature the pressure in the floats can decrease by quite a lot. Even though, the floats still have enough pressure to float, it is better to have two fully pressurized tubes. In order to have to fully pressurized tubes, you should put the them for a few minutes in the water after you inflated them. As they will be cooled by the cold water, they will lose a bit of pressure. You can pressurize the float a bit more with the pump. Because most of the air inside is now already cool enough, the floats won’t lose pressure anymore.
With the floats now fully inflated, you can mount your camera before putting the tent on top. The tent is easily assembled with two tent sticks. Each end of a tent can be put in a tap on the tubes. There are multiple elastic bands on each side to fasten the tent.
With that everything is set and you’re ready to go into the water.
