The legs can be opened/closed either by sliding a finger between them, or by squeezing the bulging. Wider legs halfway inhibits potential bending that could introduce measurement faults. Of the total of 5 parts, only the knot and bolt can be separated, the other parts are manufactured as integral parts with a minimum of play.
