Step 5: Mounting the ShockMount
Spread the tripod so that 2 legs go to one side, and the other leg goes to the other. Place the Shockmount enclosure into the "V" shape created by the legs of the tripod.
Wrap the rubber bands, one at a time, around the body of the enclosure, and secure them around the head of the tripod. This is a bit tricky to explain, but I hope the pictures help. Once the 3 bands are secured around the enclosure, it should sit quite stably in place.
The clip that came with my microphone screwed directly into the mini-tripod.
