Now you want to push the tool into the leg with your thumbs, without letting the nut tool slip out. If the nut tool is too annoying you can also lock the column by holding the gear (and screw) tight against the stage. You have to push pretty hard (normally requires both hands) but once you hear a satisfying click you should be done.
Remove the band tool. If it was successful the band should be held solidly in the actuator with both sides of the band neatly sitting in the grove. They need a bit of positioning. If you have enough light you can see that the bands are held onto small hooks inside the actuator column. If this didn't work the first time you can pull the band out and try again. If the bands are snapping it is probably a sign that you are not locking the actuator column with the nut tool.
Repeat this process for all three actuators.

#Assembly tools
## Band tool
The band tool needs to be bent before use. It is the longer of the two tools.
## Nut tool
The nut tool is optional, but useful. It is the shorter of the two tools.
