It's quite easy. Just hook the swivels together. Should look like this when you're done.

Yup, just think "belly up" when you stack.

It helps to have another pair of hands, juggling three rifles by yourself can be daunting.

Just three in the stack? Is there a limit?

So if you own three, all is okay. But if you own four Garands, what do you do?

Guess I need to tell my wife there's another Anniston road trip in the near future ....cause you can only stack in multiples of three!

The 4th one is to protect the other 3.

The other squad members stack their rifles on/with the first three. One stack per squad.

If you have more than three rifles to stack, just lean the others into the stack at the top, don't use the stacking swivel. The first 3 will hold up the others.
