    Actually, the side supports get in the way.

    Yes, the loadspreaders shouldn't get in the way of the first cross string if everything else is the same. I will post photos later.

    I also need to find new loadspreaders. The current ones get bend out of shape after a couple of string jobs.

    effectively, the columns and arms will move outwards, and everything else will be the same.

    It's hard to explain without photos.

    There's no way to "flip" the load spreaders.

    if youre really determined to always use the load spreaders on top you could pull off the yellow rubbery looking piece to give you room for a firm shim to give your load spreader more support. This was the only way i could see one fitting a shim in the top otherwise you'd block the 1st cross at the top.

    No need as the load spreader does not block the first cross at the top. It just clears.

    The load spreaders get bent out of shape because of the lateral force acting on the frame during the tensioning process.

    I also moved the support columns further apart so that the side supports contacted as close to the first main-cross intersection as possible.

    Nice pictures. The supports are positioned much better this time.
