Mud Mount Kits:
MMK-8X-DSW & WMKM-8X-DSW
Description
Mud Mount Kits are the preferred mounting options for the TPMC-8X-DSW when
the cutout made in the drywall for installation of the TPMC-8X-DSW is too large.
These kits provide support for additional plastering that can be applied to hide large
irregularities in the drywall cutout.
NOTE: If mounting into a material other than drywall (for example, wood lectern,
concrete or rock) use the cutout template, available in the post-construction kit
WMKM-8X-DSW. For concrete and rock mounting material, allow for proper
ventilation before mounting the TPMC-8X-DSW.
There are two Mud Mount Kits. The MMK-8X-DSW is a pre-construction
accessory. Pre-construction refers to framed walls prior to hanging drywall. This
accessory must be used with either the Pre-Construction Mount Kit (PMK-8X-DSW)
or Back Box (BB-8X-DSW).
The WMKM-8X-DSW is a post-construction kit. Post-construction refers to framed
walls with drywall hung. This accessory is designed with a mounting plate so that it
can be placed anywhere on a wall without the support of a stud.
NOTE: Since the TPMC-8X-DSW contains moving parts, mounting to a stud offers
more support and is therefore highly recommended. Although Crestron offers the
post-construction WMKM-8X-DSW mounting option, a mounting option that is
secured to a stud, such as the BB-8X-DSW or PMK-8X-DSW is highly
recommended.
NOTE: If necessary, consult the latest revision of the TPMC-8X-DSW Operations
and Installation Guide (Doc. 6588) for a complete list of mounting options. The
document is available from the Crestron® website
(http://www.crestron.com/manuals).

Setup
Supplied Hardware
The MMK-8X-DSW consists of three parts. These parts produce an assembly that
attaches to the BB-8X-DSW or PMK-8X-DSW. The WMKM-8X-DSW consists of
six parts, three of which make up the MMK-8X-DSW, as well as a mounting plate, a
set of mounting screws and a cutout template set.
The mounting plate provides the necessary support for post-construction
applications. Two overlay cutout templates (4504431) are supplied. One is in the
shape of the required opening; the other is similar to a frame, with the inner area of
the frame the shape of the required opening. (Refer to the illustration on pages 3.)
Separate the two cutout templates along the perforated lines. Use the template that is
most convenient.

Installation
This section provides an installation procedure for each Mud Mount Kit. The
“MMK-8X-DSW Procedure” starts below and the “WMKM-8X-DSW Procedure”
starts on page 7. Be sure to review each procedure before starting.
MMK-8X-DSW Procedure
This section provides the necessary steps for the assembly of the MMK-8X-DSW
with either the BB-8X-DSW or PKM-8X-DSW. It is assumed that the BB-8X-DSW
or PKM-8X-DSW has been secured to the stud according to the instructions in the
latest revisions of their Installation Guides (Doc. 6579 and Doc. 6580 respectively).
It is also assumed that drywall is in place and a rectangular cutout for the
TPMC-8X-DSW is made in the drywall.
Complete the steps in the order provided. The only tools or materials required and
not supplied are four standard drywall screws, #2 Phillips screwdriver, a level and
tools/material to apply drywall joint compound.
CAUTION: Allow an air gap of at least 12 inches (30.48 cm) in the wall cavity
above and below the TPMC-8X-DSW for heat dissipation.
NOTE: The illustrations in this procedure show the installation of the
MMK-8X-DSW with the PMK-8X-DSW. Even though the illustrations only show
the PMK-8X-DSW, they are identical for the BB-8X-DSW.
1.
Pass an adjustment plate through the opening and align its two center holes
with the top two pins on the PMK-8X-DSW. Verify that the pins on the
adjustment plate are not between (facing) the adjustment plate and the
PMK-8X-DSW. Refer to the illustration on the following page for visual
guidance.

2.
Slide a push-on fastener over each pin of the PMK-8X-DSW (or
BB-8X-DSW) to loosely secure the adjustment plate and the mounting
plate. Do not push the push-on fasteners all the way down onto the pins.
Slide them on enough to keep the adjustment plate and mounting plate as
one adjustment/mounting plate assembly.
3.
Use the second adjustment plate and repeat steps 1 and 2 using the lower
two PMK-8X-DSW (or BB-8X-DSW) pins.
NOTE: When installing into the PMK-8X-DSW, verify that the 18 AWG bus wire
securing the cables for the TPMC-8X-DSW remains attached.

5.
When the mud ring plate is in position, bend the top two flanges of the plate
upward and the bottom two flanges downward.
•
If mounting into the PMK-8X-DSW, bend the flanges approximately
90 degrees.
•
If mounting into the BB-8X-DSW, bend the flanges back as far as they
can go.
6.
Use four standard drywall screws (length should not exceed drywall
thickness by more than ½ inch) to secure the mud ring plate to the rest of
the assembly. The screws pass through the clearance holes in the
PMK-8X-DSW (or BB-8X-DSW) and are secured in the extruded holes of
the adjustment plates.
7.
Verify that the mud ring plate is level.
NOTE: Do not overtighten screws. Doing so may over-dimple or rip the mud ring
plate.
8.
Use a #2 Phillips screwdriver and tighten the drywall screws by hand so that
they slightly dimple into the holes in the mud ring plate.
9.
Apply drywall joint compound as needed to finish the cutout. Avoid
covering the four tapped mounting holes.
10. Run the necessary cables for the TPMC-8X-DSW and secure them behind
the drywall.
11. When dry, the TPMC-8X-DSW and touchpanel can be installed using the
four tapped holes in the PMK-8X-DSW. Refer to the latest revision of the
TPMC-8X-DSW Operations and Installation Guide (Doc. 6588) for
installation instructions. Refer also to the comprehensive illustration on the
following page.

WMKM-8X-DSW Procedure
This section provides the necessary steps for the assembly and installation of the
WMKM-8X-DSW into a wall. Review the procedure and complete the steps in the
order provided. The only tools or materials required and not supplied are a drywall
saw or equivalent, a level, four standard drywall screws, #2 Phillips screwdriver and
tools/material to apply drywall joint compound.
CAUTION: Allow an air gap of at least 12 inches (30.48 cm) in the wall cavity
above and below the TPMC-8X-DSW for heat dissipation.
1.
Installation Guide – DOC. 6581B

2.
Slide a push-on fastener over each pin on the adjustment plate to loosely
secure the adjustment plate and the mounting plate. Do not push the
push-on fasteners all the way down onto the pins. Slide them on enough to
keep the adjustment plate and mounting plate as one adjustment/mounting
plate assembly.
3.
Use the second adjustment plate and repeat steps 1 and 2 using the lower
two pins.
4.
Locate an area on the wall that is free of miscellaneous wiring and studs.
5.
Make a small hole near the middle of the designated site; verify that the
location is suitable.
NOTE: Make the cutout as level as possible. The mounting plate allows for only
minor leveling adjustments.
6.
Use the drywall saw or equivalent to produce a level, rectangular cutout in
the drywall as shown on page 3.
7.
Insert the symmetrical mud ring plate into the opening, as shown in the
illustration on the following page.

Carefully pass the adjustment/mounting plate assembly through the opening
and rest the assembly against the interior surface of the drywall. Verify that
the adjustment plates are between the mounting plate and the drywall.
9.
When the adjustment/mounting plate assembly is in position, bend the top
two flanges of the mud ring upward (approximately 90 degrees) and the
bottom two flanges downward (approximately 90 degrees). Refer to the
illustration on the following page.
NOTE: Adjustment/mounting plate assembly will have a slight play; this is normal.
It allows for minor adjustments to the entire assembly during installation.

10. Use four standard drywall screws (of adequate length) to secure the mud
ring plate to the adjustment/mounting plate assembly. The screws pass
through the clearance holes in the mud ring plate and are secured in the
extruded holes of the adjustment plates.
11. Verify that the plate is level before tightening.
NOTE: Do not over tighten screws. Doing so may damage the plate.
12. Use a #2 Phillips screwdriver and tighten the drywall screws by hand so that
they slightly dimple into the holes in the mud ring plate.
13. Run the necessary cables for the TPMC-8X-DSW and secure them behind
the drywall.
14. Apply drywall joint compound as needed to finish the cutout. Avoid
covering the four tapped mounting holes.
15. When the joint compound is dry, the TPMC-8X-DSW can be installed
using the four tapped holes in the mounting plate. Refer to the latest
revision of the TPMC-8X-DSW Operations and Installation Guide (Doc.
6588) for details. Refer also to the comprehensive illustration on the
following page.
