TIPS ON USING RIG’EM RIGHT GEAR

LAYOUT BLIND

The main frame, and then the gun rest member, must be installed correctly and at the appropriate angle, in order for the doors to fit correctly onto the layout blind. Therefore, please follow this useful tips when setting up the layout blind for the first time.

  • Do not try to raise the back rest or install the gun rest frame member or the doors until the main frame that forms the perimeter of the blind is pushed all the way back until the bar under the knees falls between the space in the Velcro strips as pictured.

  There is a wide strip and a smaller strip of Velcro with a space between them on the floor of the blind where the frame stops.  (See image at left)

  • It may be necessary to work the cover around the frame with your hands at the very back of the blind, behind the headrest, while you are pushing the frame to the back of the blind.  (See image below)
  •  The bottom material is very strong and durable, but it is also very stiff.  And like a good pair of leather shoes, it may start off stiff but it will soon break-in and fit perfectly.

 

REMOVNG THE CARIBINER

When using the sliding weight decoy anchors, we have found that when getting ready to throw out your decoys it’s better to remove ALL of the decoys from the caribiner clip rather than try to remove one decoy at a time. I like to hold all of the lines in my hand down below any twist in the lines and then remove the caribiner from all of the loops. Then I can easily pull out any one decoy from the bundle and throw it out. If you watch the demo video on the home page, you will see that when I am throwing out the decoys, I am holding all of the decoys without the caribiner attached.

TIPS FOR USING THE RIG’EM RIGHT JERK RIG

Use a zip tie to create a loop in the keel of the decoys you plan to use for the jerk line. It’s much easier to attach the swivel to this big loop than the hole in the decoy’s keel, especially with cold hands and gloves. A stainless steel split ring works well too, but they can be tough to attach to the decoy.
