****** Page 5 ****** 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Select the installation location for your screen within reasonable proximity from your power source. For best support of your screen, it is ideal to secure your screen into the studs of your house’s internal framework. If studs are not available, use hollow anchors for mounting your wall screws into drywall. If you’re installing in a concrete structure, use concrete bolts to secure your screen. Always consult a professional installer or hardware professional to ensure that the proper screws and/or hardware are being used. Ensure that both brackets are in perfect level alignment with one another. Use wall/ceiling wood screws to secure to the wood studs. Use hollow anchors if mounting in drywall. The screen casing is designed to accept the wall screws directly. If not using the Optional L-Brackets, be sure to position the washer between the head of the wall- screw and the anchor slots on the screen’s casing. Using a tape measure, mark the keyholes that are located at the back of the screen’s casing end cap. After marking the area and predrilled hole, insert the screw and have at least 1/8″ from the wall to mount the screen. (See example in Figure 1.) Figure 2 will show you an optional installation using chains (not included).
