Noter:
• Den første End part er en Pass Thru, ikke en Right Pull By. Hvis du laver en Right Pull By, er det let at blive usikker på hvilken hånd der skal bruges i Split Square Thru 2.
• Callers vil ofte erstatte Split Square Thru 2 og/eller Trade By med et andet kald.
• Den sidste del, Trade By, kan være lidt bøvlet for dem der laver Pass Thru. For at lave det mere glidende så læn dig let over mod venstre efter Left Pull By for at indikere-, samt lave Pass Thru' lettere.
• Originally, Square The Bases was written such that Double Pass Thru was also a valid starting position. The Ends were to Divide (Veer Out) and then proceed as in the above definition. Usage from Double Pass Thru is considered inappropriate today.
• Choreographically, Square The Bases is equivalent to Ends Cross Fold. This fact is useful to dancers when dancing the call with Phantoms, and to callers when sight-calling.

Square The Bases But anything [C1]: Lav en Square The Bases men erstat Split Square Thru 2 og Trade By med anything kaldet. Nogle Callere vil måske forvente at der udføres en Trade By efter anything kaldet men her bør de være mere specifikke og eks. sige Square The Bases Replace Split Square Thru with anything.

Square The Bases Plus 2 [C4]: Do a Square The Bases but replace the Split Square Thru 2 with a Split Square Thru 4.
