What are the Osmo Amazon Fire base extension legs used for?

In order to play the Osmo games on the 7th Generation Fire 7 and 8, the legs in the base must be extended.

HOW TO EXTEND:
In order to extend the base legs, you need to pull the legs out while keeping the button pressed.

HOW TO RETRACT/SHORTEN:
To shorten the base, hold the button while pushing the legs back up. Note that if the legs appear stuck in one position, you may need to wiggle them a bit from side to side.

Please refer to the following videos to see a demonstration of leg extension/shortening.

The instructions for whether to extend or shorten your legs are also part of the setup steps presented at the launch of each app.
