Operating the catcher is easy... Simply push the catcher under the olive tree and tilt forward so the catcher entrance slides around the main trunk and under the bottom branches (this ensures you are not losing any fruit) .
For best use, the tree shape would have been pruned with the height of the catchers in mind.
You can reach the olives in the middle of the tree by simply unhooking the mat near you to move closer to the tree.
