 For AR15, the basic installation process is-

  • Unloading of the rifle should be done before starting the installation. Both the upper and lower dual heatshield handguards should be separated from each other.
  • The first step is to remove the inner heat shield of the handguard with the help of needle-nose pliers. This inner shield will be later placed on the rifle base.
  • Next, the outer most heat shields are cut off with the help of wire cutters precisely.
  • The bipod stud is to be screwed into the backing plate and tightened down. Care should be taken during tightening to prevent any form of cracking.
  • While removing the sling swivel from a rifle, extra attention should be given to avoid mishaps. The removal process can be done by pressing one side of the swivel for unlocking the retention pin.
  • Loosening of the screw on the bottom part of the bipod is another necessary step. The clamp can easily get detached from the tension of the bipod through this step.
  • Latter step involves placing the clamp on rifle stud. It enables the retention pins to adjust inside the clamp and insertion into both sides of the stud opening. Then the screw should be tightened firmly on the bipod's bottom part. The clamp can get safely attached to the rifle stud in this manner.
  • Last step of the installation involves setting the previously removed sling swivel and placing it on the bottom part of the bipod.     
  •  
  • The knurled knob is to be then tightened around the bipod, and the direction of the bipod legs should be pointed forward to the muzzle of the ar15 rifle.
