I purchased the boom arm kit for the CT48. The support arms for the base and one other arm is wrapped in yellow plastic webbing. I assume that this is merely protective for shipping but wanted to make sure before I remove it since I would have to cut it to get it off.

When assembling the boom arm, the pictures show the floor support tubes as if they are touching the floor. After putting it together, it would appear that they should be just a little bit off the floor or movement of the vacuum with the supports in place would be difficult as they would scrape. Should they be mounted so the bottom flat part of the tube is just a little off the floor?
