3Frame construction

Frame assembly

Connect the two pins of each main fragment to a rod using rod-to-pin clamps.

The rod should lie close to the bone and the skin, but not so close as to risk pressure on the skin if the limb subsequently swells. There should be enough room between the rod and skin to allow cleaning.

Fully tighten the rod-to-pin clamps to complete the two partial frames.
